Event description
What do we lose when intelligence is a number? Watch the film and join the discussion about inclusion. You never know what people can do.

About this Event

Intelligent Lives tells the stories of three pioneering young adults with learning difficulties – Naieer Shaheed, Micah Fialka-Feldman, and Naomie Monplaisir – 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 history and impact of intelligence testing.

Watch this FREE screening of Dan Habib's latest film INTELLIGENT LIVES and take part in the discussion on equality, diversity and inclusive education. This is an opportunity to explore collective thinking about intellectual impairment and transform the label from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility. For more information on the film please see www.intelligentlives.org.
