Sam Fleischner

Hi everyone, my name is Sam Fleischner, I'm a director of films and music videos. In November 2009, I read an NY Times article about a 13 year-old boy with Autism who ran away from home, riding the NYC subway for 11 days. The story captivated me and a year later I reached out to meet the family in hopes of learning more about their experience.

With their help, I spent the next two years developing the screenplay, STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS, the adventure of an outsider kid looking for his place, and trying to survive a system that wasn’t designed for him. I am reaching out to the Autism community for support and collaboration. As a film that will illuminate the multi-faceted nature of Autism in a positive light, I hope to engage individuals and organizations that work to spread awareness and raise funds for research.

Check out our Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/44007702) and Facebook pages to share with friends, and help support this project! If you have any questions it, send me an email at autismfilm@seethink.com -- thanks guys!
