Please join us for A-Town's free screening of “In A Different Key” this Thursday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the Tampa Theatre.  

The award-winning documentary A Different Key examines this question. It explores the life of Donald Triplett, the first person diagnosed as autistic, and how his rural Mississippi community embraced him—and his differences—thereby allowing him to live a long and happy life.

Based on the Pulitzer-nominated book of the same name, the film is produced by Caren Zucker, a Peabody-award-winning television news producer and 25-year ABC News journalist; and John Donvan, an Emmy-Award-winning correspondent for ABC. In the film, Zucker shares her own experience in finding a suitable community for her adult son, Mikey, who is diagnosed with autism. The film examines the best and the worst of what community can mean to persons with autism, but ends on a hopeful note that we can all do more to help those who are “different.”
