"You Can Be BRAVE" is a feature documentary about one mother's 15-year journey boldly fighting for her son, who has an intellectual and developmental disability, to be included in all areas of society. You will see how her perspective on disability evolved, and how she is continuing to break barriers to (dis)ABILITY inclusion. You will understand what we as a community can do to make informed, intentional action to include people of all abilities. Q and A after the screening. Director Statement This film is a personal story of my 15-year journey fighting for my son Antonio to be included in all areas of society. It describes how my perspective evolved about people who have (dis)ABILITIES, and how I continue to educate and influence our communities to make informed decisions and take intentional actions to include people of all abilities. This is my first film about dis(ABILITY) inclusion. It is a labor of love, made on a shoestring budget, with a lot of help from people who know way more about the video, sound, and film production than I ever will. The team that helped get this film made all have a connection to a person with a (dis)ABILITY and desire to live in a more inclusive world.
