Thursday, we continue our Through the Lens series with Matt Fuller and Carolina Groppa's documentary film about the challenges of finding love. Finding and managing a romantic relationship can be hard for just about anyone, but for those on the autism spectrum, it’s exceptionally difficult. Fuller and Groppa's film offers a deeply personal look into the lives of four people with autism as they struggle to overcome their troubles with communication and personal interaction to find true romance.

Join us for a free screening of Autism in Love on Wednesday, February 10 at 7:00 p.m., at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map]. Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with filmmakers Carolina Groppa and Matt Fuller. It’s part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film CenterRSVP to the event via Facebook | DETAILS
