UCD to host premiere of autism documentary

By From page A4 | April 23, 2014

The UC Davis MIND Institute will host the Northern California premiere screening of the documentary “Sounding the Alarm” at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at 2825 50th St. in Sacramento.

The film follows 12 families after their children receive an autism diagnosis. It includes an interview with David Amaral, research director of the MIND Institute, who addresses autism research, risk factors and research funding.

“This film highlights both the challenges and the resiliency of families with a child with autism spectrum disorder,” Amaral said in a news release. β€œIt will be of particular interest to anyone who wants to learn more about autism β€” especially the day-to-day practical issues that confront families. The film is realistic, frightening and optimistic all at the same time.”

Emmy Award-winning documentarian John Block, a 30-year veteran of NBC News, directed and produced the film.

The event is free to the public, but reservations are required 916-703-0289 or [email protected].
