Event Details

The Autism Society, Central VA will host our final free movie of the summer on the big screen at River Road UMC on August 30. Admission and refreshments are free!

The highly acclaimed documentary Wretches & Jabberers, is about two men with autism who have limited speech but a whole lot to say. As young people, both faced lives of isolation, unable to convey their inner intelligence. It was not until adulthood when each learned to communicate by typing—giving them a way to express their thoughts, needs and feelings—that their lives changed dramatically. After more than ten years of advocating for people with autism, they felt it was time to take their message global—to help people with autism in other countries around the world break through the isolation they both knew so well.

“Banishes the myths about autism and reveals its global face.” – Parade

“An eye-opening and most entertaining doc… nearly perfect” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Autism finds its voice.” – Newsweek

“Ingenious documentary about real autistics” – Wall Street Journal
