Event Admission

Join ReelAbilities Houston for Mental Health Night which features screenings of short films “Remedial” and “My Disability Roadmap.”

In the Emmy Award-winning documentary short “My Disability Roadmap,” Samuel Habib, 21, wants to date, leave home, and go to college. But he drives a 350-pound wheelchair, uses a communication device, and can have a seizure at any moment. Determined to find his path forward, he seeks out guidance from America’s most rebellious disability activists. Will they empower him to launch the bold adult life he craves?

“Remedial” follows Will and his mother as they resolve to build a new life by relocating to Houston following the tragic loss of Will’s father. At his new school, Will’s social and learning difficulties lead to a false diagnosis of his condition. Inspired by real events, this film observes one of the loneliest disorders that children recovering from life-altering traumas face.

This event is free. Registration is required: https://www.reelabilitieshouston.org/events/reelfilm-mental-health-night?date=2024-02-21T01:00:00.000Z.
