Autism The Show

Friday - - The Big Story -

ana Makki, co-pro­ducer of As One, a doc­u­men­tary chart­ing the jour­ney of 10 autis­tic chil­dren – and their fam­i­lies – in the UAE as they staged a mu­si­cal, says, “We were over­whelmed by the pos­i­tive feed­back that As One re­ceived fol­low­ing the premiere at the Abu Dhabi Film Fes­ti­val, and we were over the moon when all 10 of our kids came on stage to re­ceive two stand­ing ovations. The ar­ti­cle in Fri­day was in­stru­men­tal in help­ing us fill the Emi­rates Palace the­atre. Now we’re try­ing to get the film a full the­atre re­lease – and we hope more peo­ple will be able to see it soon.” Find the full story at
