The Limits of My World is an autistic coming-of-age story exploring that it means to be a nonverbal disabled person in today's society. 

This documentary follows an autistic young man’s transition from the school system into adulthood and the challenges he faces adjusting to his new life.

Filmed from the intimate perspective of his older sister Heather, The Limits of My World seeks to understand Brian’s personality beneath his disability. The film questions the steps we take to integrate the severely disabled into society, and strives to portray the personality behind a person’s disability.

A sensitive portrayal of Brian and other adults with high support needs. A revolutionary form of family narrative, and I hope to see more like it.

Sarah Luterman, Spectrum News

The Limits of My World is a quiet, slow-moving film that never preaches or rubs your face in policy debates. Rather, it lets the camera rest on the protagonist and those around him, immersing the viewer in the gritty reality of autism
