Intelligent Lives – A Documentary by Award-Winning Filmmaker Dan Habib

Film Screening: Intellignet Lives

 

Intelligent Lives, a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib, has its Delaware County premiere at DCIU Morton.

 

Intelligent Lives stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce.

"People with intellectual disabilities are the most segregated of all Americans," Habib says. "Only 17 percent of students with intellectual disabilities are included in regular education. Just 40 percent will graduate from high school. And of the 6.5 million Americans with intellectual disability, barely 15 percent are employed."

 

Intelligent Lives is a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America.
