Horse Boy film
 
This feature-length film follows one Texas couple and their autistic son as they trek on horseback through Outer Mongolia in an attempt to treat his condition with shamanic healing. The film companion to Rupert Isaacson’s best-selling book of the same name, this documentary features interviews with foremost experts in the field of autism, including Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen of Cambridge University; and Dr. Temple Grandin, who is a professor of animal behavior at Colorado State University and who herself has autism.

This showing is jointly sponsored by Great Strides of Northeast Iowa and The Spectrum Network.
