More information and RSVP

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. Three pioneering young adults with intellectual disabilities — Micah, Naieer, and Naomie — challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce.

Thank you to our community partners for co-presenting Intelligent Lives, Inclusive Education Canada and Community Living Toronto. And to our RAFFTO 2019 partner, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. And our venue partner, Daniels Launchpad.
