Abandoned by his birth parents and unable to speak for himself, DJ Savarese (“Deej”) found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a tect-to-voice synthesizer. As he makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses. In his advocacy on behalf of other nonspeaking autistics, he embraces filmmaking and poetry, and discovers what having a voice can truly mean.

This screening is a part of the 2017-2018 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. The Capitol Arts Center and the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) are community screening partners for this film series along with The Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors BureauWarren County Public Library, W.K.U.
