After months of waiting for many of us, May 12th, 2011 is our chance to see Wretches and Jabberers. The film’s producer, John Hussman, is sponsoring “100 Cities, One Night for Autism”, which promises to be special viewing of the movie in 100 select cities across the country (full listing of locations).
Oscar-winning director, Gerry Wurzburg, directs this “global buddy movie” about two men with autism who travel the world meeting other folks on the spectrum and inspiring changes in paradigms and practices. Growing up, Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette were excluded from typical schools and educational experiences. Now able to communicate by typing, Thresher and Bissonette put a new face on autism as they travel and meet with others with autism in Sri Lanka, Japan, and Finland.
Here in Chicago, you can see the film at the following locations:
- Century Center Cinema, 2828 N Clark Street, Chicago
- Lake Theatre, 1022 Lake Street, Oak Park
