Autism in Love is a feature-length documentary that explores the lives of four adults with an autism spectrum disorder as they pursue and manage romantic relationships.

Lenny is young man living in Los Angeles who has been struggling to accept autism and himself. This  label  has  been  the  biggest  hurdle  in  his  life  and  has  made  meeting  and  dating  girls  seemingly  impossible.  The  expression  of  his  sexuality  and  longing  for  intimacy  continue  to consume him as he searches for himself.

Dave  and  Lindsey  have  been  together  for  eight  years.  Like  most  committed  couples,  they’ve  been  in  different  places  at  different  times  during  the  course  of  their  relationship.  Now,  they have finally reached the point where they need to align themselves as individuals so they can unite as a strong couple ready to enter marriage successfully.

In the twilight of their 20-­year marriage, Stephen and Gita are faced with the ultimate test of terminal illness. Despite his limited speech and her physical deterioration, their intimacy thrives as Stephen supports Gita and her battle with ovarian cancer.

Autism in Love insists that audiences question and reevaluate their own ideas of what it means to love and be loved.

Official Selection: 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, 2015 Warsaw International Film Festival
