    Jewish Disabilities Awarness/Inclusion Movie
    Tuesday, Feb 27th 7:00p to 9:00p
    "Spectrum" made its world premiere at the United Nations General Assembly and won the CINE Golden Eagle Award for Best Documentary Short. The film explores the inner sensory experience of autism. While autism is largely regarded as a social disorder, Spectrum reveals the underlying sensory differences that create an autistic perspective. Sensory issues render a world where vision, sound, touch and smell can be intense. The story is a series of character driven portraits beginning with Temple Grandin. Other characters include a non-speaking poet, painter, martial artist and group of children. Rather than fearing autism, "Spectrum" seeks to understand it.
