Film screening of "The United States of Autism" in Columbia
On Monday, May 20 th at 7:30pm - 9:25pm in Columbia, SC at AMC Dutch Square 14, there will be a screening of the film which follows 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.
The film opened to a sold out NYC venue on April 5th and has been highly praised. It is our hope that you will consider sharing information about the film with families and staff or other interested parties. The person that is presenting the film in Columbia has 16 days to meet their threshold to have the screening and they are almost there. Tickets can be purchased at: http://www.tugg.com/events/3716
