Julie Sokolow, who directed the excellent video about the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum that I posted yesterday, is making a documentary called Aspie Seeks Love. The teaser looks great!
David Matthews can’t get a date. He is a writer and artist with a great sense of humor and impeccable dry delivery. He has scored solo art shows around Pittsburgh, readings at coffee shops and acting gigs in a few short films. He’s got a nice job, house and car, and could even treat a lady to dinner. So what’s the problem?
At 41 years of age, David was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. This late-in-life diagnosis and lack of treatment in childhood has left David with a lot of catching up to do. Although David is highly intelligent, he has a major blind spot: empathy and understanding of the human, especially female, psyche.
Aspie Seeks Love follows David’s journey to understand his Asperger’s, improve as a person, writer, and artist, and find a meaningful relationship. We’ll watch David explore the world of online dating and we’ll also see his attempts to break out of his shell and connect with women in person. David’s quest for self-improvement will culminate in the Pittsburgh release party for his debut book Meltdown in the Cereal Aisle.

Brett Bobley writes, “‘Hypertext: an Educational Experiment in English and Computer Science at Brown University’ is an amazing documentary film from 1976 made by Brown University computer scientist Andries ‘Andy’ van Dam.”
