Join us in our campaign to produce this film

In our film we witness an extraordinary method of raising children with autism.  It's something that unfortunately has had to be re-discovered by each parent on their own.  These parents have searched for ways to reach their sometimes-silent children, and unlock their minds. Other parents of autistic children, too, can learn how it's done.


In FIERCE LOVE and ART we see how a creative process, such as painting, drawing, musical composition, even poetry have been the imaginative outlets that have transformed children with autism.

Grant Manier,  is an excellent example.  As a child he obsessively tore pieces of paper. His mother Julie spent countless hours nurturing his obsession into a singular vision. He learned gradually to arrange the torn bits into enormous artworks, which today sell for thousands of dollars. Grant's artistic process has become his window to the world, and today he speaks clearly and with authority about creativity.  His mantra, he says, is “It’s not what you can’t do; it’s what you can that makes you more.”

                                                                                                               

Our film brings you a number of these human stories.  Each one tells of an inexplicable mystery.  But each one also reveals a common theme:  a parent or a set of parents who were fiercely devoted to their child's well-being.  And as you'll see, it makes a huge difference in these children's lives.           

                                                                                                       

 These stories are as emotional as they are moving.  They may transform you.


Children with autism and their parents need your help. We ask that you join us in our effort to educate and inspire, so that you may help spread the word about a way some parents have used to enable their children to overcome the often devastating solitary confinement that is autism.

Please help us complete our film.  For your contribution, we offer you on-screen credit as one of our producers as well as copies of our film. 

 More importantly, we offer you an opportunity to be an essential part of a national campaign to make an enormous effect in the lives of families with autism.

OUR COMMITMENT AND OUR THANKS

We have made a commitment with our time and our own funds to produce and direct the most influential film that we can about one aspect of autism. We need your help to enhance our production funds so the film can have the greatest possible impact. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children and young adults with autism.

We think that there is no substitute for seeing exactly what has happened in these remarkable families. We are making this film to illuminate and to inspire. So we thank you personally for your support, and we thank you on behalf of people with autism and their families.
