SCRIPT MOVIE: AMERICAN SNAKE PIT, by Daniel Tomasulo

Based on the writer’s novel. In 1987, following a public outcry about its questionable medical practices, Staten Island’s Willowbrook State School for people with intellectual disabilities closed its doors for good.

Flat broke and almost finished with graduate school, Dan Tomasulo — now a core faculty member at Columbia University’s Spirituality Mind Body Institute — was hired to relocate Willowbrook’s most severely disabled inhabitants into a groundbreaking community-based group home.
