From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes Intelligent Lives, 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.

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 personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

Join us for the closing night celebration of the 2019 festival including a special conversation and Q&A with special guests. Reception with light bites to follow. ReelAbilities Film Festival is dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories and artistic expression of people with different disabilities from a variety of communities.

This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute. Additional funding provided by the Richard S. Morse Fund.
