|About:||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. Intelligent Lives challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment, and intimate relationships.
After the showing, we will be joined by Micah Fialka-Feldman, who is featured in Intelligent Lives, and his mom, Janice Fialka. You can learn more about Micah and his journey here: Dance of Partnership and here: Micah Fialka-Feldman: Through the Same Door.
