INCLUDING SAMUEL

Photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of children with disabilities before he had his son Samuel nine years ago. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. In this award-winning film, Habib documents his family's efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives, a journey that transforms each of them. The film also features four other individuals with disabilities speaking about their experiences.
