Asperger’s is often misunderstood when it comes to passion and empathy. It is a common belief that individuals with
Asperger’s lack empathy and the ability to experience human emotion on the broad spectrum which society believes is inherent in the human race. I believe this is a misconception and that individuals with Asperger’s express their passion in unconventional ways.
My Violin Cries is a short documentary about my journey through mournful emotions after the loss of my violin teacher and mentor Stefanie Graef Carr. In this film I show how my special interest in music was not only the language I shared with Ms. Stefanie, but in the end the way I cried for her.
This was made on no budget by a first time autistic filmmaker.
