Photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about inclusion before his son Samuel was born. Now he thinks about inclusion every day.
Habib's award-winning film Including Samuel documents his family's hopes and struggles as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families. Including Samuel-a highly personal, passionately photographed film-captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion and features interviews with teachers, parents and disability rights experts.
