Description:
The Arc of the New River Valley presents a Free Film Screening for "Intelligent Lives" on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at Regal New River Valley Stadium 14.

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.

"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 U.S.

A Q&A session will follow the film.

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Doors open at 6:00 pm and the film starts at 6:30 pm.
