- Movie presentation of The United States of Autism
Follow one man's 11,000 mile, 40 day journey across the American landscape to visit twenty families and individuals affected by autism while searching for answers for his own son. With interviews from around the nation that include the widest spectrum of backgrounds - each conducted in the participants' original language - the film weaves a broad and compelling tapestry across the spectrum of American life in all its faiths, disparities, colors, and cultures. What he learns along the way will change not only his life, but the lives of those he meets, forever. It's a story about the best days that still lie ahead for our nation, the families, and the people who give America its heart.
US of Autism is a film that describes what it is like to be the United States and raise someone with autism. The film crew travels the United States and peaks into the lives of 20 different families living all over this diverse nation. One thing that is apparent in this film is that autism is not color blind and it does not discriminate against religion, or economic lines. A local military family at Fort Hood is in this film.
