Disability Roadmap

This one slipped by me. On Sept. 29, 2023, when the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards presented the winners of the Documentary category, the titles included My Disability Roadmap, an extraordinary short film directed by Samuel Habib and Dan Habib.

The documentary follows Samuel Habib, a young man who has cerebral palsy and a rare genetic disorder. He travels to meet successful adults who have disabilities to create a roadmap for himself and others.

The film is only 22 minutes long — stop and watch it now! You’ll be glad you did.

Both Dan Habib, Samuel’s dad and an award-winning documentary film director and producer, and Samuel work with the Westchester Institute of Human Development. Dan Habib is the organization’s Inclusive Communities Project Director, while Samuel Habib is its multi-media production assistant and presenter.

Inclusive Communities was created to “leverage WIHD’s expertise and the power of documentary film to promote greater acceptance and inclusion of children and adults with disabilities in schools and communities through curriculum, training, public awareness, and worldwide outreach,” according to the WIHD website.
