has just released a short feature, Autism Every Day
. This hard-hitting piece of documentary journalism presents clips from the lives of families coping with the daily challenges of raising classically autistic children. The film has received high praise for its power and impact -- and seems to be well-received across the board. A word of warning, however: while it may make parents of autistic children feel a little less alone, it will certainly leave them feeling emotionally raw.
Autism Every Day was produced by Lauren Thierry and Jim Watkins of October Group and Eric Solomon of Milestone Video. The film was screened at A New Decade for Autism, a fundraising event held May 9, 2006 in New York City, and subsequently broadcast by Don Imus on his show on MSNBC.
