Normal People Scare Me Too was Inspired by the past and driven the future in autism. A decade after the award-winning film Normal People Scare Me Too; a film about autism, Taylor Cross is at it again in this sequel documentary wherein he interviews former and new cast members and family about attitudes and first-person perspectives/experiences in autism today.
In the new Normal, Taylor asks such questions as “What’s hard for you?” “What are you really good at?” “What do you want educators, parents and others to know about autism?” and of course “Do normal people scare you?” 10 years ago, most of the cast was clear that “normal” was scary. We’ve come a long way since then with answers that will surely amaze and transform the way we perceive so-called “normal” today.
Created with a film crew comprised of 75% autistics from Joey Travolta’s Inclusion Films, with music, art and animation created and performed by 65% autistic musicians/composers/artists, the new Normal is pleased to be a more inclusive production this time around. Normal People Scare Me Too was conceived by Taylor Cross, directed and co-produced by Keri Bowers (his mom,) and Produced by Joey Travolta.
