Join the filmmaker, disability advocates and experts from the Taishoff Center for a short preview of Intelligent Lives, a documentary exploring the importance placed on IQ and how self-advocates across the country are challenging the notions of intelligence and pushing for a more inclusive society.

During the post-film discussion, we’ll consider how professional development, portrayal of disability in the media and an increase in college options, including Syracuse’s InclusiveU program, can provide new opportunities for independence.

Events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged.

‘The Leftovers’: Third and Final Season to Bow in April 2017

HBO is breaking its silence with regard to The Leftovers’ return date: The acclaimed HBO drama will launch its eight-episode third and final season in April.

Exec producers Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta confirmed the news on Facebook and Twitter Tuesday, with the latter putting a Guilty Remnant spin on the announcement.

As we previously reported, Season 3 — which was shot on location in Australia — will feature returning series regulars Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka and Janel Moloney. Additionally, Season 2’s entire Murphy clan — i.e. Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Jasmin Savoy-Brown — will return. Also back in a big way: Scott Glenn, who has been bumped up to series regular. Glenn recurred in Seasons 1 and 2 as the father of Theroux’s Kevin Garvey. (Savoy-Brown has also been upped to a regular after guest-starring in Season 2.)
