Hudson SEPAC, Superintendent Kevin Lyons presents “Including Samuel”

18

Hudson – “Including Samuel” will be presented Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Hudson High School, 69 Brigham St., by the Hudson Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) and Superintendent Kevin Lyons.

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. Shot and produced over four years, Habib's award-winning documentary film, “Including Samuel,” chronicles the Habib family's efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film honestly portrays his family's hopes and struggles as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families. “Including Samuel” is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion.

Those interested in attending should RSVP by calling 1-978-212-9651 or e-mailing hsepac@hudsonsepac.com. The Parent Advisory Council is run by parents of special education children and meetings are free and open to the public. For updates on meetings and workshops, visit www.hudsonsepac.com.
