A Special Rollin' Reels for National Autism Awareness Month: Autism In Love
The feature runs continuously throughout the day and, when available, is shown with subtitles/closed captioning. Snacks permitted!
Autism in Love is a highly acclaimed documentary that explores the experiences of four adults on the autism spectrum as they search for love and romance. In 2014, the Center for Disease Control announced that in the U.S., 1 in every 68 children could be identified as being on the autism spectrum. Rarely do we hear about about what happens once these kids with autism grow up. What happens when children with autism become adults with autism and want to have lives of their own and find love? Autism in Love seamlessly answers these questions with candor and sensitivity. It gives its often marginalized subjects an unprecedented platform to speak for themselves as they navigate perhaps the most fundamental human experience - the experience of love. Through multidimensional and nuanced storytelling, this educational documentary encourages all of us to challenge our assumptions and enriches our understanding of love.
