Autism Reality is a 10 minute documentary film about autism by Alex Plank. The film features interviews with Dr. Temple Grandin, Alex himself, and a handful of others including Alex’s parents.
This film shows a perspective not often seen in autism media by portraying autism as a reality which is neither good nor bad, just a different way that some people are wired.
Alex is the founder of WrongPlanet.net, one of the earliest and largest online communities for people on the autistic spectrum.

I’m not sure that there are many geeks that don’t know about Wrong Planet. After all I would guess that most of us rate on the autistic spectrum somewhere.
