About Love and Communication

Love and Communication is a unique film in that it shows, in personal terms, what parents, family members, teachers and school administrators go through in trying to provide care for a child with autism.

Feedback from Screenings

  • "Loved Love and Communication!!! Great playing, awesome story with interesting surprises."
              -- Miriam T, Autism Parent, New Jersey (New Hope Film Festival)

  • "The relationships within the family, all the things it touched upon, hit so close to home for me, and I thank you for being so delicate, preserving the dignity of everybody involved."
               --Maria P.  Autism Parent, Moscow, Russia (Breaking Down Barriers Film Festival)

  • "It was an amazing movie. Loved the story, the acting, the dialogue, the score, the toggling to the child’s perspective of the world. And the scenes of him captivated by the fan and lining up the toys were so evocative. Brilliant work!"
