Our dear friend and filmmaker Melanie Perkins McLaughlin is working on a new film project with Dan Habib (creator of Including Samuel, Who Cares About Kelsey? and many other disability and education-related films) with the working title “Intelligent Lives.” (Watch the incredible 14-minute preview,featuring a personal perspective and narration from Academy Award winning actor Chris Cooper here.)
They are filming a high school student and a college student as two of his three documentary subjects. They are also seeking a third subject in the employment realm, specifically a woman with Down syndrome working in paid, integrated employment (part or full-time, but full-time preferred) or is in the process of transitioning to integrated employment.
If this is you and you are in the MA, NH, RI CT area, share your success story with us, and we’ll pass it along to the filmmakers.
