Proudly Presents the Documentary Film
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. Four years in the making, this award-winning documentary film, Including Samuel, chronicles the Habib family’s efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. Including Samuel is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion.
Including- A thought provoking conversation with a panel of community members, school staff, youth and parents expressing their experience and expertise on creating more inclusive schools and communities.
