Vectors of Autism: A Documentary about Laura Nagle was screened at the Sedona International Film Festival last week.
Yesterday it received the Heart of the Festival Award!
I find it beautifully metaphorical that when our film about autism didn’t quite fit in, the festival created a new category so that Vectors was honoured for its sensitivity and its powerful message without changing a thing.
They accommodated our film and created a whole new award.
Now we just need a little more of life imitating art…
Below is a link to a video of Laura and John receiving the Heart of the Festival Award. Go to 30:15 for the best part!
