I am in Here: A View of My Daily Life with Good
Suggestions for Improvement from my Intelligent Mind
A movie written by Mark Utter and directed by Emily Anderson and Jim Heltz
Running Time: 35 minutes
This film was partially inspired by Geraldine Werzberg's documentary "Wretches and Jabberers" in which two of Mark's peers travel the world meeting people who also use "Supported Typing." One of the things which makes "I am in Here" extraordinary and unique is the fact that the creative mind behind the film has been presumed incompetent for most of his life. Mark's insight and sense of humor in the face of many challenges sends a powerful message about how people are perceived by others and sometimes judged unfairly.
Screenings and Post Screening Discussions
Everyone can identify with having a story and wanting to be heard. “I am in here.” tells the story of one man’s difficulty with communication. The post screening discussions allow the audience to engage with Mark through “supported typing” in discussions about what he observes of human interactions and how we can improve them.
