Filmmakers: Robert Rooy and DJ Savarese
Deej is the story of DJ Savarese (a.k.a. “Deej”), a gifted, nonspeaking teenager in Grinnell Iowa, as he fights to become independent in the face of classic autism, acute anxiety and a traumatic past. It is a story told “from the inside out” – from DJ’s perspective, using his powerful, poetic words, composed one finger at a time on a keyboard. Deej is groundbreaking in that it is the first major documentary in which an autist is a full partner in the filmmaking process.
