Coming up this weekend on Super Soul Sunday, to honor National Autism Awareness Month, OWN is broadcasting Autism: the Musical on April 15.
Against all odds a woman leads five autistic kids in writing, rehearsing and performing a full-length musical. The Emmy-winning doc took home statues for Outstanding Nonfictional Special and Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming.
The film's director Tricia Regan stated, "This movie is a love song to everyone who has ever dealt with autism, and anyone who ever will. Its message of hope and strength against all odds has the power to inspire and change lives... I salute OWN for bringing this film to their audience.”
