Sounding the Alarm, a documentary that gives a glimpse into the lives of people touched by autism, will have its premier screening Wednesday at the University of Miami.
The film, a Blockburger Productions documentary, focuses on the challenges of raising children with autism and later finding opportunities for them to lead productive lives.
The free screening, hosted by Autism Speaks and the university, will begin with a reception at 6 p.m. at the University of Miami Newman Alumni Center, 6200 San Amaro Dr. and include a question and answer session at the end.
Bob and Suzanne Wright, the founders of Autism Speaks, one of the largest organizations representing families in the United States with affiliates in the United Kingdom, Canada and Qatar, will be at the screening.
The couple founded the organization in 2005 after their grandson was diagnosed with autism.
