The Beautiful Colors of Jeremy Sicile-Kira

Beautiful ColorsJeremy Sicile-Kira is an artist who is on the spectrum - he paints with bursts of color. As he sees life. Readers will know his mother Chantal Sicile-Kira, a talented author whose books on autism topics have helped so many families. Congratulations to Jeremy for the recognition on POV (Point of View) on PBS.  From the website:

Jeremy Sicile-Kira uses painting to transcend his disability and communicate his dreams to others. This film accompanies the broadcast premiere of I Didn't See You There.

When a circus tent goes up outside his Oakland apartment, a disabled filmmaker launches into a meditative journey exploring the history of freakdom, vision, and (in)visibility. Shot from the director's physical perspective — mounted to his wheelchair or handheld — I Didn't See You There serves as a clear rebuke to the norm of disabled people being seen and not heard. Winner, 2022 Sundance, U.S. Documentary Director and Grand Jury Prize nominee.  Visit the site here.

Great to see the young man showing his talent.My son got his chance at Polly Tommey's shop -Pollys Place, and it was great .Years back he would be painting and drawing pictures galore,so rather than dump them many were sold at Pollys shop and the money raised donated back. One went to an African ambassador,the falling man it was titled and that was before 9-11.Many thanks to Polly and all the staff at the shop.
