"Ethan" is a new short documentary film that follows an Amherst family and their son with autism for over a decade.

The film offers a glimpse into the day-to-day joys and struggles that come with raising a child with a disability. It also is a portrait of Ethan — a very creative, lively and fun-loving young man with his own vision for his future.

Ethan will be screening at the Museum Of Science on April 3 as a part of the ReelAbilities Film Festival
