The documentary "How the Titanic became my lifeboat" is based on a true story about an Icelandic boy called Brynjar Karl and how his fascination with Titanic became his lifeline to independence. Brynjar’s story began with an insatiable desire to escape the limitations of autism and become a part of the expressive, vibrant world around him. His fascination with Titanic pointed the way, his untapped talents set wheels in motion. While there is no cure for autism, there are ways to challenge it. The film explores those possibilities with Brynjar and other young people who share their experiences being on the autism spectrum and how their talent elevated them. Brynjar has become an important advocate for young people on the autism spectrum calling after acceptance and inclusion in the school systems and workplaces for people on the spectrum.


The kickoff screening of the film will be on Thursday, November 19th at 7:00 pm (Mountain Time). The film will be available until Friday, November 27th unless we sell out sooner.
