The Invisible

Creator: Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU)

Description: This new documentary, The Invisible, by the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union offers a clear and moving message of why societies should not lock up people with intellectual disabilities. As the film notes, we still have hundreds of institutions in Europe in 2011, because these places are considered very convenient. Convenient, that is, except for the people who are forced to live in the institutions. The HCLU's film shows the situation of people living in these large scale institutions and calls for alternatives that provide humane living conditions.
