Music Within DVD full-length version is an entertaining feature film that celebrates with humor and depth the importance of looking beyond the disability and seeing the value of the person. The Music Within DVD is based on a true story that depicts how one man helped change policies and attitudes toward people with disabilities.

Richard Pimentel (Ron Livingston, Office Space) grew up with an emotionally unstable mother (Rebecca De Mornay) and lost his father in a freak accident, so he turns to public speaking in school to find direction in life and seek the approval and praise he needs. After receiving insightful advice from a public speaking mentor (Hector Elizondo), Richard enlists in the army and serves in Vietnam. He returns with impaired hearing and finds it difficult to get a job. Through friendships with Art (Michael Sheen), who has cerebral palsy, and fellow Vietnam vets with various ailments, Richard finds his calling as an employment placement advocate for those with disabilities. Hes inspired to write a powerful training program for employers and government agencies to improve conditions, hire and retain employees with disabilities. His effort along with many others committed to the disability movement contributed to the creation of the congressionally approved Americans with Disabilities Act.

The DVD full-length version can be purchased separately ($27.95 retail price).

Music Within DVD extended training version captures 29 brief conversations by Richard as he candidly speaks to viewers about the movie and the impact it has on people. The DVD is formatted to enable the facilitator to easily select the appropriate segment to address specific topics with students, employers, veterans, persons with disabilities, workforce development and rehabilitation professionals, educators, special education, parents of individuals with disabilities and religious organizations.

The Facilitator Guide offers detailed instructions for conducting training for each of the groups.

The implementation guidelines are clearly defined to enable the facilitator to attain the training objectives.
