Autism: One Man’s Journey is a documentary and memoir about Scott Michael Klumb, a local film maker diagnosed with autism at age 23. Scott takes viewers on a journey, wanting to bring awareness to the issues related to late diagnosis; and not understanding what was “wrong” with him for most of his life. This is a story of hardship, perseverance, and hope. It is a story of inspiration including Scott’s personal interview with Dr. Temple Grandin, one of the world’s most accomplished and well-known adults with autism.
Scott filmed, edited and produced this inspiring autobiographical film with the hope to reassure late diagnosed autistics that they are not alone, there is support for them too, and that it is possible to connect with people who care.
Autism: One Man’s Journey proves that an autistic person can hone their strengths and abilities to create a meaningful life and career. It can be hard, but Scott wants to inspire others and let them know that things do get better. All things are possible.
Trailer available on Scott’s website.
