From the Kickstarter page:
Autism for many people is typically associated with silence and non-verbal expression. For us as parents and siblings, the silence is deafening and never fits what we know is going on inside. We set out to make a film that shows how much they have to say. We received funding from friends and family; we took what we had and got started. "A Thousand Words" is a film that demonstrates that people with autism can express themselves and communicate through art. Production took 4-5 weeks throughout 2011. Principal photography took place in a farmstead community for adults with autism; Bittersweet Farms in Ohio. We have finished the edit and achieved picture lock.
