      Intelligent Lives Screening with Filmmaker Dan Habib

      Center on Disability & Community Inclusion, along with a group of organizations committed to cultural and linguistic competence in developmental disabilities, is pleased to host a FREE screening of Intelligent Lives, a film by Dan Habib. This event is free and open to the public.

      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. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

      New Hampshire-based filmmaker Dan Habib, the producer, director and cinematographer of INTELLIGENT LIVES, will present the documentary after the Vermont Family Network's Annual Conference on April 3rd at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Burlington. Following the screening, Lt. Governor David Zuckerman will address the crowd and Dan Habib will lead a discussion with the audience.

      This film is presented in open captioning and with audio description. CART services and ASL interpreters will also be provided. If you are interested in attending and have other questions regarding access and accommodation, please contact the Center on Disability & Community Inclusion.
