Peabody’s Black Box Theater, November 7th, 2019. Free and open to the public. Award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib’s “Intelligent Lives” initiated 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.
The film stars three young American adults with intellectual disabilities 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.
* Hosted by Northeast Arc and Bridgewell.
