Film Screening: “Intelligent Lives”

November 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

“Intelligent Lives,” a film by Dan Habib, 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 work force. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the United States.

“Intelligent Lives” challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships. To find out more, please visit http://intelligentlives.org.

The film will be screened in Zabriskie Hall 106 on the Wells College campus at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13. A Q&A and discussion will follow, and refreshments will be provided. The film is open-captioned.

For more information, please contact Marcie Belfi, assistant professor of education, at mbelfi@wells.edu or 315.364.3246.

Cosponsored by: Access for All Abilities (AAA), the Social Sciences Speaker Series (S4), and the Wells College education program. Screening made possible by Racker, envisioning a world where all people know they belong.
