‘We Are All Special’ Weekends for Autism Awareness

French autism film

In line with the massively delayed Le French Festival that was due to kick off in March early this year, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) resume plans to raise awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Screenings of the French movie The Specials featuring French cinema greats Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb are now available, following GSC’s previous features of Redha (2016) and The Wayang Kids (2018) where RM1 of each ticket sold will be donated to selected autism charities and organisations.

Like its predecessors, this movie bring audiences into the world of autism; with The Specials focusing on Bruno and Malik – caretakers of autistic children and troubled teenagers. In an environment where autism cases are sidelined due to negligence, this tale of friendship, determination, and connection will tug at heartstrings with the strong bonds being forged.

A GSC exclusive, The Specials is priced at only RM15. Hall bookings for companies and organisations to view this movie and host fund-raisers for an autism charity of choice can also be arranged.

In addition to the screening of this movie, GSC is also organising a charity bazaar and an artwork exhibition by notable autistic Malaysian artists at the Aurum Theatre, The Gardens Mall.

Launched on the 27th September and returning on 7th October, the bazaar runs from 11am to 6pm (Sunday). Merchandise, products, foodstuff, and other handmade goodies from the Autism Café Project (ACP) is available for purchase, alongside artworks from Wan Jamila (artjamila), Amira Daniea (Daniea’s Art), Luqman Hakim, and Yuri Azzari. Entry to the bazaar and exhibition is free-of-charge.

GSC has also produced exclusive ‘We Are All Special’ t-shirts in royal blue, available at RM29.90 a piece at both the bazaar and online via Keepsake at shop.gsc.com.my. Like ticket sales for The Specials, a portion of each t-shirt’s value will be donated to selected charities and autism-focused organisations.

Head on over to your nearest GSC outlet to catch The Specials, or visit The Gardens Mall on 7th October to further your understanding of the spectrum and support our autistic community!
