Filmmakers: Robert Rooy and DJ Savarese
Abandoned by his birth parents and presumed incompetent, DJ Savarese (“Deej”) found not only a loving family but also a life in words, which he types on a text-to-voice synthesizer. As he makes his way through high school and dreams of college, he confronts the terrors of his past, society's obstacles to inclusion, and the sometimes paralyzing beauty of his own senses. Deej is a story told largely from the inside, by DJ – not by his parents or autism experts.
