Film Raises Awareness of Adults with Disabilities

April is Autism Awareness Month, and on April 2, 2011 you’ll have the opportunity to see Wretches and Jabberers at the AMC Lowes Georgetown 14 Theatre in Washington, DC. If you’re not located in DC, click here to see if this inspiring documentary is coming your way. 

Wretches and Jabberers is a ground-breaking documentary about two autistic men (Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette) on a mission to change the global perception of people with disabilities. Presumed to have intellectual delays because of their challenges in communication, both men were excluded from classic schooling opportunities and relegated to institutions and adult disability centers. When they later learned to communicate by typing, it dramatically changed their lives and inspired them to teach others that intelligence can express itself in different ways.
Show your support for these two courageous men by purchasing presale tickets here.
AMC has also generously offered to donate 10% of the ticket proceeds to the Autism Society in honor of Autism Awareness month.
