A new 60-minute documentary from PBS called “Lives Worth Living” by filmmaker Eric Neudel follows the evolution of the disability rights movement beginning in post-World War II through the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990. The film follows the parallels between the disability rights movement and other equal rights movements and famous people from history and includes interview with leaders of the movement, the legislators who worked on ADA, and historical footage of advocates who took action to create change. “Lives Worth Living” will premier October 27 on PBS’s Independent Lens series.
