A New York romantic comedy pairing a Jewish couple with autism played in fact by actors on the spectrum. Columbia MFA alumni Rachel Israel’s labour of love is a tour-de-force story about the high-functioning judgmental David and the outgoing Sarah. From their meet-cute at a Jewish Community Centre program for special needs adults, the pair shares abundant chemistry and surmounts concrete obstacles. The lovers demolish assumptions of otherness, of living with learning disabilities and autism, while propelling a universal and touching story. PANEL GUESTS IN ATTENDANCE. This repeat screening of KEEP THE CHANGE, is available in ticket packs and will be rated so youth may attend. Sponsors: Rena Cohen and Rick Parnell
