I received a communication a couple years ago, from a guy called Rich Everts. He said something like this, 'You made a film on autism and I’d like to talk to you a bit on that process…because I’m going to make one.' Kind of like that, Rich. We called each other. We chatted at length. I even gave him a good candidate to be in his film ---never happened, but his film did! By golly, he did get funding from Pepsi Refresh Project and he made his film, The United States of Autism. It sure is exciting to hear about one’s idea - see it in the womb- then watch the birth. I love the trailer. I bet you will too!
