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 it’s limitless potential.

Reviews

"Deeply moving and a profoundly inspiring insight into the lives of autistic adults."
- Dr. Liz Pellicano, Institute of Education, University of London


"...insightful interviews and arresting camerawork take us into the lives of these extraordinary and yet often misunderstood individuals."
- Camilla Bixler, Co-Director, Autism, Asperger Syndrome Coalition for Education, Networking, and Development (AASCEND)


"This film does not minimize the problems of autistic adults by pretending that autism has not made life difficult and painful for most of us."
