Too Sane for This World Autism Documentary Chronicles Living with ASD

Too Sane For This World, a documentary on the lives of 12 adults living with different autism spectrum disorders, will be released on DVD April 8, 2014.

Too Sane For This World was shot and edited by a mostly autistic crew and features such ASD luminaries as Dr. Temple Grandin, Robyn Steward and Greg Yates. The film also features other adults with autism, Aspberger’s Syndrome and other ASDs that are less high-functioning but work hard to express their stories of living with ASD.

Too Sane for This World explores the challenges, gifts, and distinct perspectives of 12 adults on the autism spectrum. Featuring an introduction by bestselling author, Dr. Temple Grandin, and interviews designed by adults with high-functioning autism, the film discusses many of the problems facing the autism community – from bullying to marginalization and discrimination. A unique collaboration between neurotypical and atypical individuals, men and women living on the spectrum speak candidly about defining and coming to terms with their autism, difficulties they’ve faced, and the experiences that have shaped their lives, illustrating the neurodiversity of the mind and its limitless potential.
