Jeremy 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.
