Aspergers Are Us + Autism and the Rhetoric of Scientific Sadness

19:00 - 22:00

 Facebook event page
57-59 Club Garden Road, S11 8BU Sheffield

In this coming of age documentary, produced by the renowned Duplass Brothers, four friends on the Autism spectrum whom have bonded through humor and performed as the comedy troupe «Asperger's Are Us» will prepare for one final, ambitious show before going their separate ways. Directed by Alex Lehmann.


In context of deficit focussed, pathalogical autism, ‘a discourse of affect and values, or a rhetoric of scientific sadness in which autistic people are mourned even as they are ostensibly explained” (Duffy & Dorner 2011), a panel made of the autistic / professional / academic community will discuss the film and possible ramifications of humour and celebration in social autism.
