Show#216 Interview with Director of Too Sane For This World William Davenport

Monday night at 8pm, be sure to tune in for our newest episode of Hope Saves the Day on Autism Radio Tonight's Show is with Host Paul Cimins Who sits down with William Davenport.

About The Director :William Davenport is a director and actor, known for Citizen Autistic (2013), Too Sane for This World (2011) and A Mother's Prayer (2009).

  The film features twelve people, some with Aspergers and others considered "high-functioning," such as Temple Grandin (author and professor), Robyn Steward (a musician and mentor for others on the spectrum), Greg Yates (studied biophysics and psychology at U.C. Berkeley and MIT respectively) and Rudy Simone, who has written four best-selling books on Aspergers. The film was an official selection at the Hawaii International Film Festival and an honorable mention that the SAMHSA Voice Awards in 2012, also features other adults who are perhaps less high-functioning but are still working hard to find a meaningful place in our society. In the film, Steward suggests, "No matter what somebody’s disability is, they have a great number of things to offer to the world. It’s just a matter of being able to see those things and work around them. Because even the most able-bodied person has difficulties if you think about it."

 

 Too Sane for This World explores the challenges, gifts, and distinct perspectives of 12 adults on the autism spectrum. Featuring an introduction by bestselling author, Dr. Temple Grandin, and interviews designed by adults with high-functioning autism, the film discusses many of the problems facing the autism community – from bullying to marginalization and discrimination. A unique collaboration between neurotypical and atypical individuals, men and women living on the spectrum speak candidly about defining and coming to terms with their autism, difficulties they’ve faced, and the experiences that have shaped their lives, illustrating the neurodiversity of the mind and its limitless potential.
