Here are two short films featuring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) from Sproutflix.
1. “Willowbrook: the Last Great Disgrace”
This 1972 Peabody Award winner focused on an institution located in Staten Island, NY. The film, with reporter, Geraldo Rivera, was one of the first exposes on local television. As a result of its airing on WABC-TV, the manner of treating people with disabilities was forever changed.
2. “One Question”
A 7 ½ minute documentary in which 35 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities answer the same one question: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change? http://sproutflix.org/all-films/one-question/
