This new documentary by disability rights filmmaker @DanHabib is shattering stereotypes about what it means to be “intelligent” and #openingdoors to more inclusive education & employment. In addition to featuring the stories of three pioneering young adults, the film is graced with the personal perspective of Academy award winning actor Chris Cooper.

The 70-minute screening will be followed by a panel of advocates and practitioners who work on local issues of education and employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
