We are hoping to bring a screening of the film “Intelligent Lives” to Lake County, and need your help! Read more about the film, watch the trailer, and SHARE! “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.
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.”
Take a look at the trailer and if you are interested, consider reserving a ticket. We have an approved screening date at Marcus Gurnee Cinemas for Wednesday October 17 at 7:30 pm BUT we need to make sure to fill enough seats to make that happen! Tickets are $12.
