OKAY! The ASD Band Film
An energetic and uplifting profile of the four members of the ASD Band, a Toronto-based group of musicians on the autism spectrum.
Directed by, Mark Bone the film features the ASD Band members, self-proclaimed poster children for potential and possibility, as they take us on an inspiring journey to record an album and play their first live show.
Their shared love of music and mutual support of one another provides the springboard from which they are able to pursue their dreams, raise awareness, and show the world that they can do anything.
“The strong, synergic relationship of ASD Band is a testament not only to the band’s ability to overcome […] assumptions and find great success, but also to the universality of music as a language, and its capacity to transcend barricades such as abilities, cultures, age, serving as a means to connect with one another.”
