Did you know the first person to ever be diagnosed with autism lives in Mississippi? Don Triplett of Forest, now in his late 80s, was patient number one.
A new documentary, “In a Different Key,” by Caren Zucker (award-winning producer at ABC news) and John Donvan (journalist, broadcaster and debate moderator) debuts at the Oxford Film Festival and tells Triplett’s story along with a brief history of autism.
Some of the stars of the movie are the citizens of Forest, who show us all that it truly does take a village to show kindness and compassion to children and adults with autism. “In a Different Key” tells a powerful story and shows us a better way. It’s based on Zucker’s and Donvan’s Pulitzer-Finalist book of the same name.
