This screening will be preceded by an introduction from Dr David Hartley, Project Administrator for Autism through Cinema.
This event is being sold at full capacity, with no social distancing measures in place.
Diagnosed at a time when long-term institutional care was still common, Grandin overcame all odds to pursue her education. The film attempts to visualise for the audience Temple’s inner world – one in which sights and sounds are accentuated, and thoughts run ‘like a VCR tape’. And it depicts her struggles as she uses her own sensory experiences to help develop new approaches to animal farming.
Plus/ 7 Minutes with Temple Grandin, a short interview with Temple Grandin discussing her experience of autism, screens before the feature.
