New Voices Documentary

Certain Proof: A Question of Worth

William Peace University is delighted to partner with former Trustee, Dr. Don Stedman, and the New Voices Foundation to bring to campus the documentary, "Certain Proof: A Question of Worth" written, directed, and produced in its entirety in Wake County by filmmakers Ray and Susan Ellis.

"Certain Proof: A Question of Worth" is a feature documentary about three children living with significant communication and physical disabilities, who struggle against the public schools in an emotional battle to prove their worth.

Over the course of two and a half years, "Certain Proof" follows the lives of Kayla, Josh and Colin, three children with cerebral palsy. Despite multiple disabilities, they fight to prove that they are able to learn and deserve to be taught.

Colin finds "No Child Left Behind" has exceptions; Kay combats harsh stereotypes inside middle school; and Josh faces continual doubt that he can learn at all.

They and their families dare to hope in a striking testament to the complexity of the human spirit.

Reserve your seat today. Registration closes on Oct. 10.
