In the summer of 1995 documentary filmmaker Henry Corra gave his twelve-year-old autistic son a video camera to document his own life. The film, GEORGE, that emerged over the next year, as father and son filmed side by side, is a swirling kaleidoscope of sights and sounds that turns into a stunning examination of autism and the fundamental nature of perception itself. Corra looks as closely as he dares at his son's autism while, in the background, his family begins to unravel.

I loved this film. It takes a deeper look into autism than most films I've seen. It is simultaneously a portrait of an autistic boy and a vehicle for the father (filmmaker) to explore his relationship to his son and the disability. This film was recommended to me by a professor, and I would support that recommendation for anyone who is trying to making a film about autism, or for anyone who knows someone with autism.
