America Reframed #514 “Deej”

WXXI World

Deej is the story of DJ Savarese (“Deej”), a gifted, young writer and advocate for nonspeaking autistics. Once a “profoundly disabled” foster kid on a fast track to nowhere, DJ is now a first-year college student who insists on standing up for his peers: people who are dismissed as incompetent because they are neurologically diverse. Will Deej be able to find freedom for himself and others like him?

El Cap Report

 https://www.facebook.com/ElCapReportTheFilm/  – El Cap Report looks at the sometimes inspiring and sometimes frightening stories of the men and women who climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Included is the now famous and historic Dawn Wall project, known as “the hardest climb in the world.” This is not a “climbing” film per se, but rather a film about climbers that looks into their emotional and psychological motivations for risking their lives in the pursuit of adventure.
