Take the Being Seen Challenge

Being Seen Challenge

Being Seen offers unique access into the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities, their families, and the people who support their independent living. Individuals were asked to reflect upon their own disabilities, and the outcome was an unexpected eye-opener.

Following the early success of the film, Paul Zehrer and Chikara Motomura have now launched the campaign, Being Seen Challenge. “My hope is that, in some small way, this film offers viewers an opportunity to get beyond the ‘otherness’ that separates us and opens [viewers] to a more expansive insight of people with developmental disabilities”. – Paul Zehrer, Producer/Director
