“Film examines ‘lost generation’ with autism”
“An eye-opening and most entertaining doc… nearly perfect”
“Banishes the myths about autism and reveals its global face.”
“Ingenious documentary about real autistics”
“Autism finds its voice.”
In Wretches & Jabberers, two men with autism embark on a global quest to change attitudes about disability and intelligence. Determined to put a new face on autism, Tracy Thresher, 42, and Larry Bissonnette, 52, travel to Sri Lanka, Japan and Finland. At each stop, they dissect public attitudes about autism and issue a hopeful challenge to reconsider competency and the future.
