Choosing to Be a Good Friend
October 3 @ 8:45 pm - 11:00 pm
Check out Good Friend’s latest film during a live, online screening at Awareness Film Fest!
In the spirit of creating “nothing about us without us,” director Denise Schamens puts eight neurodivergent students at the center of this autism acceptance film, six of whom tell their own stories of living with autism. Three other friends and siblings offer their perspectives. All 12- to 16-year-old participants use their own language, which makes these personal accounts authentic platforms on which to build rich discussions about neurodiversity, bullying, and social-emotional expression with other middle school students.
