Filmed over twelve years, Ethan is a funny, poignant coming of age story of a young man with autism. As his family grapples with raising a son to adulthood, Ethan shows glimmers of hope amidst a future of uncertainty. Ethan’s story speaks to the larger issue of young people with disabilities transitioning to adulthood, aging out of the public school system and its support services. This thought-provoking, intimate portrait is both the specific story of one imperfect and wonderful family and the universal story of our shared search to belong.
Director: Jo Sittenfeld (in attendance)
