Parents, teachers, caregivers and children ages 10 and up accompanied by an adult, are invited to a screening of photojournalist Dan Habib's award-winning documentary film "Including Samuel" at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24 at the Aspen Library, 701 Aspen Drive, Vernon Hills. Before his son, Samuel, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Shot and produced over four years, "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. The film has been screened at universities, national conferences, public television stations and independent theaters across the country. Movie running time is 58 minutes. Registration is not required.
