Another screening under our belt! This past Monday afternoon (despite the inopportune time slot), Neurotypical played to a crowded house at the DOXA Documentary Festival. This screening was particularly memorable for two reasons. One, we experienced our first english speaking audience and two, Adam Lando, joined us for an amazing Q&A after the film. Ironically, we had just met Adam's mother, Marianne Kaplan, in Thessaloniki where her film about Adam, The Boy Inside, was being screened. After Neurotypical, Adam shared his perspective about Asperger's and his burgeoning rap career.

"A remarkably cinematic film that often recalls the work of Terrence Malick in its treatment of the natural world, Neurotypical possesses a deep respect for the people it profiles. Indeed, Larsen's lens finds unending fascination in his subjects while tracking them in their day-to-day lives — whether it's a guy trying to get a date, a toddler's stroll in the woods, or a ride to the local skate park that radiates pure boyish joy, each individual navigates their own path through a world that is both bewildering and beautiful. With intelligence and care, Neurotypical carves out a more expansive idea of what it means to be human."
