THE HORSE BOY Premiere with Special Guests at South Lamar
Alamo Drafthouse, Austin Film Society and AutismSpeaks.org present a special premiere screening of THE HORSE BOY with Director Michel O. Scott, author/producer Rupert Isaacson and more special guests in attendance!
Monday, September 14, 7:00p, Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar
Winner of the Audience Award at SXSW 2009! This intensely personal documentary chronicles parents Rupert Isaacson and Kristin Neff's struggle to make sense of their child's autism and find healing for him and themselves with the shamans of Mongolia. But it is also the story of the special bond between father and son, one of the greatest gifts life can offer, as society enters an era of direct, hands-on parenting by fathers. This odyssey gives insight into how, in life's darkest moments, a gateway to joy and wonder can be found. Part travel adventure, part insight into shamanic tradition and part intimate look at the autistic mind, THE HORSE BOY tells one family's extraordinary story, giving voice to the thousands who display amazing courage and creativity every day in the battle against the mysterious and heartbreaking epidemic.
