Such labels are at the center of the debate about autism: is it a disease or a different way of being—or both? In Loving Lampposts, we witness this debate and meet the parents, doctors, therapists, and autistic people who are redefining autism at a moment when it's better known than ever before. Motivated by his son's diagnosis, filmmaker Todd Drezner explores the changing world of autism and learns the truth of the saying, "if you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person."
"Loving Lampposts" received the Best Feature Documentary award at the 2011 Peace On Earth Film Festival. Director Todd Drezner accepted the award from festival directors Nick Angotti, Milissa Pacelli and Clayton Monical.
In its February 25th issue, the Chicago Sun Times called "Loving Lampposts" a "revealing documentary with a personal touch." The three star review appeared in the paper in advance of the film's screening at the Peace on Earth Film Festival.
