i go home


“i go home” is a one-hour 2016 TV documentary produced by WITF chronicling the journey from institution to inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities in the 1960’s. This title honors a man with intellectual disability who was institutionalized at Pennhurst State School and Hospital in eastern Pennsylvania during childhood and could only say those three words. The goal of the film was to increase society’s awareness of the journey of Pennsylvanians with intellectual disability and their contribution to American life.
