Documentary explores boy’s autism through his twin sister’s eyes

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

According to Avery Medvin, her twin brother Xander is going to be a superhero when he grows up because he is good at “helping people.” This is just one aspect of Xander explained in the documentary the twins’ mother, Jenn Medvin, is making about her children. As Avery explains, the purpose behind the creation of the short film is to show that “autistic kids are not scary or weird; they’re just different from us.” The short film will be called Little Hero: A tale in two parts. According to Little Hero’s Kickstarter page, the documentary depicts “a 6-year-old boy’s Autism as seen through his twin sister’s eyes.” During July, the film successfully raised over $10,000 in thirty days, and Medvin plans on submitting the documentary to film festivals this summer.
