As described on “respectability.org”, Ian started as a mother’s mission to educate her son’s bullies on the playground — one to one. When she realized that the need for inclusion was bigger than one playground, she wrote a book to change thousands of minds and attitudes about people with disabilities.

She approached MundoLoco, a top digital animation studio in Latin America, about creating “Ian,” an animated film to deliver the message of inclusion to audiences all over the world.

The movie is about 10 minutes and has no dialogue. An ESL lesson plan has been designed for the movie, which you can find on http://film-english.com/2019/01/16/ian/.
