Lowcountry Autism Foundation is proud to host a screening of the award-winning new documentary film #swimteamthefilm, an inspiring look at the rise of a competitive swim team of autistic teens. Following three teammates on the cusp of adulthood, when government services become scarce, Swim Team is a portrait of diverse American families grappling with the problem of "aging out." Over the course of a year, the film explores the overwhelming struggles they face and the triumphs they achieve as they strive for independence, inclusion and a life that feels winning.
Swim Team has been screened at numerous film festivals, winning “Best Sports Documentary” at The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and chosen as an Artist in Residence film at the Napa Valley Film Festival. LAF will be screening this uplifting film on April 26th at 7:00pm at the Mt. Pleasant campus of Seacoast Church. Information on local resources will be available starting at 5:30pm.
