Spotlight Film Festival – Including Samuel
Join us at the Spotlight Film Festival in Mt. Vernon for a viewing and discussion of Including Samuel. Child care providers who register in advance will receive two free STARS hours to recognize and honor the contributions you make to children’s lives every day.
Photojournalist Dan Habib tackles the topic of inclusion in this film featuring his son, Samuel, who has cerebral palsy. This film documents the efforts of their family to include Samuel in every aspect of their lives and honestly portrays the family’s hopes and struggles as they move through this continuous process. This film also includes the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families to further demonstrate the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion.
The showing of this film is sponsored by Skagit County Public Health Developmental Disabilities Program.
