A documentary short about the Arts of Life collective in Chicago where developmentally disabled adults get paid to produce art. These are people who previously were ignored or marginalized in traditional programs for disabled people.

I ran into Usama at the rally. Usama is an acclaimed filmmaker and his is also a radio host at the new Chicago Public Radio Station vocalo.org. He also used to work for Studs Terkel as his archivist and was even the subject of a chapter of one of Studs’ recent books.
Usama’s film Nice Bombs will be on The Sundance Channel later this month! Visit DanceHabibi for more info.
