The final evening of film at the ReelAbilities 2019 Film and Arts Festival will feature "Deej," a full-length documentary. DJ Savarese (“Deej”) finds comfort in words, as expressed by his poetry belying his high school senior standing. Yet he only “speaks” through a text-to-voice synthesizer. Adopted by a loving and supportive family, Deej navigates the college admissions process as a young adult on the autistic spectrum, while confronting obstacles to inclusion.
