Temple Grandin + 7 Minutes with Temple Grandin

Directed by Mick Jackson

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.
