Event description

Description

Join us for a double-bill of Unspoken and Deej, followed by a Q&A with Unspoken Director Geneva Peschka.

Thanks to our co-presenting community partners Hot Docs Canadian International Film Festival and the Geneva Centre for Autism.

With special thanks to our screening sponsor Autism Ontario.

Unspoken

Geneva Peschka | Canada/USA | 12 min | 2017

UNSPOKEN stars and is co-directed by 14 year old Emma Zurcher-Long, a teenage girl who is challenging societal judgment surrounding autism, one keystroke at a time.

Deej

Dir. Robert Rooy | USA | 72 min | English

DJ Savarese (“Deej”) finds comfort in words, as expressed by his poetry, which belies his high school senior standing. Yet he only “speaks” through a text-to- voice synthesizer. Adopted by a loving and supportive family, Deej navigates the college admissions process as a young adult on the autism spectrum, while confronting obstacles to inclusion.

Access Features at this event:

  • Audio Description: Deej

  • ASL Interpretation: Q&A with Geneva Peschka

Tickets will be available to purchase at the door (cash only)

All RAFFTO18 screenings are free for students Grades K - 12!
