One year ago director Sam Fleischner was in the middle of making a movie about an autistic boy in New York when Hurricane Sandy interrupted his work. The night of the storm his house was flooded. In the weeks after the storm he rewrote the script and included footage he shot from his porch of the night of the storm. On Wednesday, November 13 at 6PM, come Fleischner's film, "Stand Clear of the Closing Doors" in the Little Theatre, PAC and meet the director.

With an eye-opening view of life on the austism spectrum, the film simultaneously explores the strains of the immigrant experience. The film is about identity and conformity; communication and intolerance. It explores the dark spaces between us, seeking out the peculiar threads that tie us together.
