A Must-See Documentary on the History of America’s Disability Rights Movement

On October 27, 2011 at 10pm (Eastern Time), PBS will feature Lives Worth Living, an independent film that explores the challenges people with disabilities encountered before having equal access to schools, apartment buildings, and public transportation. Produced and directed by Eric Neudel, the film is told from the perspective of the disability rights movement’s pioneers, legislators, and other important advocates who for decades fought for equal rights and were victorious in enacting the Americans with Disabilities Act—landmark legislation that guarantees people with disabilities the equal access they deserve.

This powerful and moving film is made possible through the Emmy® Award-winning PBS series, Independent Lens. On October 27, be sure to tune in and watch a transformative film about the powerful movement that vastly improved the conditions for people living with a disability in the United States.
