I came across this great documentary today about a kid with autism and how he and his family live together day to day. It's a very understated but beautiful movie. Having known people with autism and spent time working on a documentary photo project in a household with an autistic child myself, I will say this film shows their everyday life in an astoundingly accurate way. The exhaustion, the angry moments, the fun moments, those moments spent thinking about the child's future after you're gone are all shown in this film in very short vignettes that make you feel like you've been living with these people for years. These filmmakers did an amazing job at gaining very intimate access into these peoples' lives and documented it in a very observational way.
Here's a slideshow with some samples of the photo project I shot over a 1 year period in an assisted living facility:
My aim was to gain that same intimate access as the filmmakers, to try and show these guys in a transitional period in their lives. As 18 year olds, they had both just that year entered the assisted living system and left their childhood homes. So this is a document of them entering adulthood in the best way they are able.
