"Life is a play, and everybody has the script but you." - Jackson D. Begley

This is how one member of The ASD Band, featuring four talented autistic individuals, describes what’s it like when you’re on the spectrum. Through a shared loved of music, Rawan, Jackson, Spenser and Ron shatter the stigma of those with autism as loners, coming together to express themselves through song. OKAY! (The ASD Band Film) follows the members of the ASD Band as they embark upon the difficult journey of writing and recording their first album, and ultimately performing their first public show. Along the way we delve into the deep corridors of their lives, as they learn to navigate a world foreign to them by finding strength in others who share the same challenges. Life on the spectrum has many individual challenges, but together, anything is possible.


The April 2 screening will be introduced by Tyler Stewart of the Barenaked Ladies, and followed by a live performance by the band and a Q&A moderated by actor and model Lauren Howe.

OKAY! (The ASD Band Film) also has a relaxed screening on Saturday, April 8. Relaxed screenings offer a sensory friendly environment for those in the neuro-diverse community or for anyone who may benefit from a more informal viewing atmosphere.

Tickets: $15 (Members from $10)
