Certain Proof - a question of worth

Elizabeth at "A moon worn as if it had been a shell" posted the trailer to this documentary and I had to share it with you.

What strikes me about this short preview is how honest the movie seems. It isn't a pity-party or an "inspirational" story where we can all look at the cute kids in wheelchairs and feel sorry for them. Instead, it seems to show the real struggle of trying to educate children with severe disabilities and the emotional toll on the parents and the teachers. The kids need so much, but is any of it helping?

I don't know when Certain Proof - a question of worth will be released, but I'll be looking for it.

Wow - I wonder when this is coming out? It looks like it will stir a lot of debate and discussion. Will it be in the theaters or on PBS?? I need to find out more about it!

I don't know, Leah. I think it's still in the editing phase and may not have a release date yet. If I find anything out, I'll let you know.
