Neurotypical: Student Life Heritage and Awareness Film Series

Oct 17, 2013
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
Davis Center 413 (Chittenden Bank Room)

Student Life is happy to announce their Heritage and Awareness Film Series for Fall 2013. Each month, we will display and discuss films pertaining to cultural, gender and heritage identity.

Films are held on Thursdays in the Chittenden Bank Room on the fourth floor of the Davis Center. Screening starts at noon followed by an informal discussion.

Neurotypical is an unprecedented exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. How the individuals and people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the "neurotypical" world -- the world of the non-autistic -- revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human. [Run time: 60 minutes]

**Free lunch is provided.
