IQ tests have been around for a while, but what do they really tell us? In a new documentary, director Dan Habib explores whether any attempt to measure intelligence can really predict a person’s true value.

IQ tests have been around for a long time, but what do they really tell us? In a new documentary, director Dan Habib explores whether any attempt to measure intelligence can really predict a person’s true value. There are, after all, lots of different kinds of intelligence. And just because a person has an intellectual disability, Habib says that doesn’t mean they should be isolated or held to low standards. Monday, he joins Doug to talk about his film. It's called Intelligent Lives.

Dan Habib directed the documentary film Intelligent Lives. On Monday, April 1, at 7 p.m., the Utah Film Center is screening the film, for free, at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Habib will be there for a post-film Q&A with Doug Fabrizio. DETAILS
