2e: Twice Exceptional (documentary) - xcriteria - 02-01-2015 07:14 AM


"2e: Twice Exceptional follows the personal journeys of a unique group of high school students in Los Angeles who have been identified as “twice exceptional” – gifted or highly gifted individuals with learning disabilities or differences. They are geniuses, mavericks and dreamers – Malcolm Gladwell’s budding “outliers.” Among them may be the next Einstein, Mozart or Steve Jobs… if they can survive both the American school system and their own eccentricities.

Featuring illuminating and thought-provoking interviews with students, parents, teachers, psychologists and therapists, 2e: Twice Exceptional is produced and directed by Thomas Ropelewski (Child of Giants: My Journey with Maynard Dixon and Dorothea Lange) and will be available for screenings Fall 2014."

Hmm... an interesting documentary. Wonder how the system will work out for them.
