TREASURE DIVERSITY cover image
Good presentation. Good information about segregation and autism. The very grainy archival footage of the blue eye/brown eye experiment presents an interesting way to teach about intolerance. "Hatred is a Learned Behavior" message is excellent. It offers up an excellent example of the autistic woman who describes herself as being bi-lingual because she can communicate by writing to normal speaking people yet, doesn't do that in live time. Vernon Smith, Nobel Laureate 2002 discusses what makes him different and is defined as autistic.
Invites viewers to understand better people who look or act different, whose abilities are different, who are autistic. This film explores the discrimination evoked when a group is considered by others to be inferior. Interviews autistic people who describes the discrimination they've encountered and their hopes for a more tolerant society.
