The Arc Minnesota Southeast Region is a co-sponsor of the screening of the film “Deej”! We hope you’ll join us at the Rochester Community & Technical College’s Hill Theatre on November 9!
“Deej,” is a Peabody Award-winning documentary about a gifted young writer and advocate for non-speaking people with autism. As Deej makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, society’s obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses. In his advocacy on behalf of other non-speaking people with autism, he embraces filmmaking and poetry, and he discovers what having a voice can truly mean.
Admission is $5.00 and tickets are available here: https://bit.ly/2Djgdg3
