Lunch & Learn- Autism Awareness Month-Keep the Change
Wednesday, April 10, 1:00PM

Join us for a light lunch and a screening of the film “Keep the Change”. With a surprisingly compassionate eye, Keep the Change explores the comic and tragic elements borne from the daily struggle of living with autism. By largely populating her cast with non-professional actors who are on different levels of the spectrum, director Rachel Israel is able to take a more organic approach to her low-key portrait of a segment of society that’s largely underrepresented or misrepresented on film and television.
