Bold and passionate, the documentary short "When I'm Not Alone" is the winner of twelve national awards, including the inaugural $10,000 Loreen Arbus Focus on Disability Scholarship from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Born female but raised as a male for the first twenty-eight years of his life, Sam Durbin experienced unspeakable abuse, never learned to read and write, and drifted in and out of institutions. Doctors labeled him a "hopeless case". He was homeless and alone when he found Integrity House, a clubhouse for people with disabilities in Southern California, where he learned to read, write, and advocate for himself, eventually becoming a published author and nationwide advocate for people with disabilities.
