Only showing at certain film festivals now, hopefully I can find other showings and will update when I do. Inclusion, its our childrens' right. And it's what's right.
Certain Proof: A Question of Worth is a feature documentary about three children living with severe communication and physical disabilities, who struggle against society in an emotional battle to prove their worth.
What if you couldn't speak? Or use your hands? How would you prove that you’re smart? That you have an opinion? That you matter?
In Certain Proof: A Question of Worth, we follow the lives of Colin, Kay and Josh, who because of Cerebral Palsy, face those very challenges every day. Over the course of two and a half years, they work through the public school system as their mothers fight for their child’s right to be there. Colin age 10, finds “No Child Left Behind” has exceptions; Kay, 13, combats harsh stereotypes inside middle school; and Josh, 6, faces continual doubt that he can learn at all. For the mothers, convincing the public schools of their child’s potential seems to be an insurmountable obstacle. It’s a daily fight simply for the opportunity to learn. To find their voice, Colin, Kay and Josh must overcome the judgments of others more so than their own disability.
Trailer is here.....
