Heather Ash's curator insight, February 28, 2014 6:48 PM

This particular video is a plea for donations so that the documentary could be finsihed but the first 4 minutes are still powerful. The documentary is primarily about how art has helped people with autism express their feelings and thoughts that they cannot express verbally. The art is therapeutic for them because it allows them to share things that have been trapped inside for too many years. Bittersweet Farms sounds like a wonderful place for people with ASD and I can't help but wonder why there isn't one of these in every state. So many people would benefit from the care provided at Bittersweet Farms. I am just glad there are places like this out there.

An interesting documentary that develops an intriguing connection between "Art" and "Autism".
