Thursday, Nov. 19, 6 p.m. – Indie Lens Pop-Up film: “Autism in Love”

Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by the Independent Television Service (ITVS), Independent Lens, and Mancos Public Library, is excited to offer an advance screening of Autism in Love, a film by Matt Fuller.

In Autism in Love, four adults at different places on the autism spectrum open up their personal lives as they navigate dating and romantic relationships. Eye-opening, first-person portrayals show that despite many challenges faced by those with autism, love can find a way. Through these stories, we see that autism isn’t a one-size-fits-all disorder, and just like neurotypical people (those without developmental disabilities), those on the spectrum also experience the complexity, heartache, and joy that all come when making a romantic connection. Autism in Love was called “affectionate but clear-eyed” by The Hollywood Reporter.
