About Our Short Film
We wanted to continue the themes of acceptance to a short film for use in schools. But the message in the film goes well beyond autism to the larger idea that we all have to discover the brilliance in ourselves. This short film is a collaboration between people from three continents. It was also a product of passion and belief in the cause – many of the people involved have direct experience and connection with autism.
Every person’s story is different with Autism, this is just one boy’s story. But in making this, we realized it resonates just as much with all of us.
