SPECTRUM: A STORY OF THE MIND, made it’s world premiere at the United Nations General Assembly, won the CINE Golden Eagle Award for Best Documentary Short and was produced for PBS national distribution for Autism Awareness month. While autism is largely regarded as a social disorder, Spectrum reveals the underlying sensory differences that create an autistic perspective. The story is a series of character driven portraits beginning with Temple Grandin, the most well-known autistic adult in the world. Rather than fearing autism, Spectrum seeks to understand it.
