Defiant Lives

"Defiant Lives" traces the origins of the world-wide disability rights movement. It tells the stories of the individuals who bravely put their lives on the line to create a better world where everyone is valued and can participate. Featuring interviews and rarely seen archival footage, the film reveals how these activists fought to live outside of institutions, challenged the stigmas and negative image of disability portrayed by the media, demanded access to public transportation, and battled to reframe disability rights as a social responsibility relevant to us all.

Mali Blues

The West African country of Mali is a birthplace of the blues, a musical tradition later carried by the transatlantic slave trade to America's cotton fields. Yet today, the music and musicians of Mali are in grave danger. As fundamentalist Islam and sharia law become more widespread, dance and secular music are prohibited, musical instruments are destroyed, and musicians are forced to flee their homeland.

Summer in the Forest

Four people who have intellectual disabilities live in a commune next to a beautiful forest near Paris. Like countless others, they were labeled 'idiots,' locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier secured their release. Providing a model that has thus far been adapted in 35 nations, the commune offers people with disabilities a place where they needn’t awkwardly fit into mainstream society, instead can comprise a society of their own.
