ANOTHER ONE OF MY FILM IS ON YOUTUBE / 20 December 2008

Hey there people, hope xmas was good to you.

'You can't be healed unless you feel' is a documentary we made for a university project. It is about an amazing musician called Stephanie who has asperger's. I was so fed up with the misconception that people with Asperger's were not capable of empathy, that I made a film with some friends from uni challenging that view. We were told we had to provide an expert for the film, ie a psychiatrist or psychologist but we chose not to because because Stephanie IS the expert of her experience. She is not a specimen or set of symptoms, but a kind, funny woman and an unique musician and singer/songwriter. Check out her myspace.
