Autism Awareness Kenya will be showing the movie Horseboy on Saturday, Feb. 4th from 1:30-5:00 pm.   The movie will start promptly at 2 pm and tea/discussion will follow the movie. There is NO childcare provided and this is NOT a child’s film. The cost is 200 KES per person. It will be shown at The Austin Room, Braeburn Theatres, Braeburn Primary School.

This is a wonderful movie that is sure to have a lively discussion to follow!

“The Horse Boy does more than chronicle Rowan and his parents’ journey across the vast, wild landscape of Mongolia. It delves into the strange world of autism itself, the relationship between humans and animals and between different cultures and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or “neuro-typical”), and the nature of healing. Audiences hear the varied theories on autism from the experts in the field, well-known researchers of autism such as Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen of Cambridge University; Dr. Temple Grandin, recovered autist and professor of animal behavior at Colorado State University; and anthropologist and researcher Roy Richard Grinker of George Washington University. But above all, The Horse Boy tells the story of a couple that goes to the end of the earth to find a way into their son’s life.”

There are no advance tickets, it is first come first serve, so come early!
