Video: "Kids with Cameras" - films created by those with autism


"Kids with Cameras" is an hour-long documentary that chronicles the challenges of seven Asperger Syndrome-afflicted children aged eleven to nineteen, on the road to self-discovery. As they engage in an intensive, week-long film camp taught by nationally acclaimed, award-winning educator Brad Koepenick, footage of this all-immersive, ciné vérité week of activities is combined with revealing moments of the childrens' private lives, and candid interviews with their families as they explore and explain their coping strategies. These brilliant artists' efforts of self-expression - films, songs, poems, and paintings - combine to paint a soulful picture of how encouraging and training their creativity might be a necessary step to connecting the exponentially increasing autistic population with the rest of the world. To anyone who's ever felt isolated or misunderstood, this is a testimony to the healing power of art.
