A Mother's Courage: Talking Back to Autism (The Sunshine Boy)
A Mother's Courage explores the extraordinary journey of Margret Dagmar Ericsdottir and her son Keli as she sets out to better understand the Autism that dominates his existence. In the process, she inadvertently crosses paths with a woman who has developed a revolutionary method to enable non verbal autistic children to communicate and escape the shackles of silence and isolation they have previously endured. The film, narrated by Kate Winslet, is truly life changing.
