2018 Events

Intelligent Lives
Monday, October 29 2018, 7 pm,  Natick High School Auditorium
Join the filmmaker, Dan Habib, for this FREE screening of his most recent documentary which challenges our notions of what it means to be intelligent. This film challenges perceptions of intelligence and points to a future in which people of all abilities can achieve their full potential in their education, work, and social lives. 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 United States. Dan Habib will introduce the film and lead a Q & A following the screening.
