Student doc about Blind Center
November 1, 2010
For those of you who may have come across this website because of an interest in disability issues, I want to share a film that I was a part of this past summer – a documentary called Independence in Sight. It was made by my students at The Factory, the after-school program I run, about an amazing institution called The Hatlen Center for the Blind. Hatlen is a year-long immersive training program where young people develop the independence they need to live on their own by living in an apartment and taking living skills classes from the Hatlen instructors.
