The documentary “A True Lesson In Humanity” takes an inspirational look at the work of the Special Needs Color Guard of America. Follow this courageous group of individuals as they travel across the United States to perform their artistic programs, as proud members of the South Florida Winter Guard Association circuit, as well as the Winter Guard International family. With great determination and perseverance, their unique talents are the tools that help them to continue their mission, which is to “bridge the gap” between the general and special populations by showing the world how capable individuals with developmental disabilities are. When they perform there “is not a dry eye in the house.” It truly puts life in perspective for all spectators as they focus on their abilities rather than their disabilities, realizing that these individuals are an important segment of our society deserving of respect and dignity.
Art From The Heart collaborated on this documentary with Ellen Kleinert-Cohn and Jerry Cohn from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Both are professionals working with the special needs population. “A True Lesson in Humanity” theme song and soundtrack music by award-winning musician Robert Urban.
