I am taking a modern poetry class online, ModPo, and a young man with autism, Dan Bergman, was part of the latest discussion. I worked with autistic students as part of my career as a speech therapist, and I was very happy to meet Dan virtually. He was live and on camera with Al Filreis. Dan is nonverbal, but made wonderful and insightful contributions to the group discussion with the help of his father and assisted technology. I wanted to know more about him. It turns out his father and mother made a film (fictional) which I found really fascinating about two nonverbal autistic young adults on a first and second date who need to rely on the help of parents to communicate. You can read about the film and see a clip here: https://www.everseradio.com/influence-new-film-autism-michael-meredith-bergman/. If interested, the film is on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT0O658O8LI. The film is a little over an hour long. I thought it was very fascinating because it raises lots of interesting issues about communication. JNaz, your post about Aeon’s animated story of Gregory Blackstock and his art is a serendipitous companion to this film, Influence. The Blackstock animation definitely made me smile!
