AFF Feature: Stand Clear of The Closing Doors

Mariana, an undocumented Mexican mother, searches the outskirts of New York City for her autistic son when he does not return from school.  Meanwhile, 13-year-old Ricky embarks on an eleven-day odyssey in the city’s subway system where he confronts a bizarre and indifferent world.  An eye-opening view of life on the autism spectrum and a frank exploration of the strains of the immigrant experience, with a breakout performance for young Jesus Sanchez-Velez. (USA, 2014, 102 min., Narrative Feature)
