The only distributor of films exclusively featuring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Lifestyles of the Poor and Unknown

Directed by Nancy Fliesler



This realistic yet loving portrait counters saccharine portrayals of people with developmental disabilities. Marni and Kris, married in 1993, live and work in NYC. Laced with irreverent humor, their story questions the meaning of “intelligence.”
