In this feature documentary film "Wretches & Jabberers", two men with autism embark on a global quest to change prevailing attitudes about disability and intelligence. With limited speech, Tracy Thresher, 42, and Larry Bissonnette, 52, both faced lives of mute isolation in mental institutions or adult disability centers. When they learned as adults to communicate by typing, their lives changed dramatically. Their world tour message is that the same possibility exists for others like themselves. They travel to Sri Lanka, Japan and Finland and dissect public attitudes about autism and issue a hopeful challenge to reconsider competency and the future. . Produced & Directed by Academy Award(R) winner Gerardine Wurzburg ("Autism is a World", "Educating Peter"). Purchase DVD at www.amazon.com or stream on Vimeo.
