About this Event

"From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes INTELLIGENT LIVES,this transformative film focuses on seeing a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America. Marianne Leone and Chris Cooper (the acting legend Chris Cooper [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Cooper]) produce the film and Cooper narrates. The film is a beautiful meditation on the power of integration. In fact, the message is clearer because Habib avoids pandering. Interlaced is the recollection of Leone and Cooper’s son Jesse, who was always integrated into mainstream schools, but only because his parents fought passionately for him.” [Excerpted from www.brieftake.com interview with Marianne and Chis by Charles Trapunski published May 27, 2019.]
