“O’Kelley Legends: 2e Behind the Scenes” follows 13-year-old Jordan O’Kelley, who has autism, as he adapts his own book into a monologue show and fundraiser to benefit the nonprofit organization SENG, which supports the emotional needs of the gifted.
The film chronicles the process of creating a neurodiverse-friendly theater experience— from casting, through rewriting, rehearsals, and finally the performance. With a home movie feel, the documentary shows how important it is for “2e” or twice exceptional individuals to have mentors and family support.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion:
Christopher J. Cormier, Ph.D., associate professor, LMU School of Education
