RSVP to Attend Intelligent Lives Screenings Across Iowa
July 15, 2019
Award-winning producer Dan Habib directed INTELLIGENT LIVES, a film starring 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. A brief, facilitated discussion will be held following the film. This event is approved to offer 2.0 hours of Foster Parent Training Credit.
