“Including Samuel” Film Screening

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

7:00-9:00 PM

Location: Andrews Middle School                                                                                         3000 Mystic Valley Parkway                                                                                                     Medford, MA 02155

Before his son Samuel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Shot and produced over four years, Habib’s award-winning documentary film, Including Samuel, chronicles the Habib family’s efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film honestly portrays his family’s hopes and struggles, as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families. Including Samuel is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion.

Come enjoy this beautiful film with us, have popcorn and candy, and participate to an after-film discussion on building inclusive schools for all our children.

Co-Chair Melanie McLaughlin; Email: medfordsepac@comcast.net;                               Phone number: 617-699-1962                                                                                                       Vice-Chair Tonya Sullivan; Email: tonyasullivan696@yahoo.com;
