In the Spotlight
The Sprout Film Festival, launched in New York City in 2003, highlights films exclusively featuring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Award-winning Anthony Di Salvo, founder and executive director, will join us for this unforgettable night. He will introduce a new superhero, Laser Beak Man, and his creator, Tim Sharp. This short film is guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and cheer!
Laser Beak Man is the creation of Tim Sharp, an internationally acclaimed artist with autism. His short film will be featured by the Sprout Film Festival at Applause at the State.
Drawing was used as a way to teach Tim how to speak and communicate. At age 11, Tim invented Laser Beak Man which allowed Tim to show the world his great sense of humor and intelligence, as well as his orginal way of looking at life.
We hope to see you there! RSVP by October 15.
