Directed by Academy Award®-winner Gerardine Wurzburg, the film follows two men with autism, Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette, who embark on a global quest to change attitudes about disability, intelligence and communication.
“100 CITIES. ONE NIGHT FOR AUTISM.” will take place on Thursday, May 12th in 100 theaters in nearly every major U.S. city, from New York to Honolulu, and is sponsored by the John P.

“Through our partnership with Area 23a, the Hussman Foundation and the Autism Society, we're thrilled to bring this compelling documentary to Screenvision's exhibitor partners and to increase autism awareness," said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations for Screenvision.
“100 CITIES. ONE NIGHT FOR AUTISM.” was conceptualized in response to a surge in public demand for more showings of WRETCHES & JABBERERS after the documentary’s New York theatrical opening in Times Square on April 1st, its West Coast run in Los Angeles on April 15th and the launch of a 40-city tour in partnership with the Autism Society during April, which is Autism Awareness Month.
“The public response to WRETCHES & JABBERERS is overwhelming. We’ve gotten pleas from all around the world to broaden the distribution of this wonderful film,” said Kirt Eftekhar, Co-Founder of Area23a. “With ’100 CITIES. ONE NIGHT FOR AUTISM.’ we have the ability to deliver WRETCHES & JABBERERS and educate thousands of people.”
