Shot and produced over four years, Habib's award-winning documentary film, Including Samuel, honestly chronicles the Habib family's efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film also features four other families with varied inclusion experiences, plus interviews with dozens of teachers, young people, parents and disability rights experts.

The Including Samuel Project is part of the Institute on Disability/UCED, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization at the University of New Hampshire. The project's mission is to build more inclusive schools and communities through curriculum, training, and outreach.

The Film Campaign

How often do you think about the educational and social inclusion of people with disabilities? Like many people photjournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about inclusion before he had his son Samuel seven years ago. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Habib's documentary film Including Samuel examines the educational and social inclusion of youth with disabilities as a civil rights issue.

Working Films has collaborated with Dan Habib and the Institute on Disability/UCED, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization at the University of New Hampshire, to host a summit meeting that is shaping an audience engagement plan for the film. This summit brought together the filmmaker with leading organization working in the arenas of disability rights and education. At the meeting we explored key efforts of the inclusion and disability rights movements, and discussed how Including Samuel can support those efforts.
