The Collector of Bedford Street (Academy Award nominee, 2003) follows Larry Selman, a community activist and fundraiser with developmental disabilities. Larry raises thousands of dollars for charity every year while he lives at the poverty level. Because of Larry's 20 years of service to his neighborhood, the community created a supplemental need adult trust fund for him. This was the first time that a group, rather than an individual's family did this. The film humanizes the story behind the abstract statistics of mental retardation, revealing how a community builds tolerance and understanding.
