For a number of years the orgainzation Autism Speaks has been draining the community of funds and resources. This film exposes how Autism Speaks relies on propaganda and myths to fund their genetic research, not considering the families that it states to support. Featured interviews include Ari Ne'eman of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, Landon Bryce of thAutcast, Robyn Steward, Rudy Simone, amoung others. Does Autism Speaks represent the autism communities authentic concerns, or are they only exploiting the cause for financial means? Is a self-diagnosed adult truly on the spectrum, or are they manufacturing a malady? The divide between parents of children on the spectrum and adults with autism/Aspergers is prevalent. Also featured in the film is an examinination of the horrors commited at the Judge Rotenberg center in the name of therapy.
What We Need & What You Get
We need funds to help enter the film into festivals and distribute the film throughout the world so that people know the truth about Autism Speaks, The Judge Rotenberg Center and other injustices done to people with disabilities.
This is a valubale film that will further the conversation about where funding for autism is allocated and how important the autism self advocacy movement is to present and future generations.
