WXXI invites you to its third Community Cinema event, a free monthly screening series featuring films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens.
On Tuesday, April 27 at 7 p.m. WXXI will present its third of four Community Cinema screenings, The Horse Boy, a film by Michel Orion Scott. How far would you travel to heal someone you love? For one Texas couple, it means a spiritual journey halfway around the world to Mongolia. When their son is diagnosed with autism, they seek the best treatments but nothing worksâ€¦ Until they discover their sonâ€™s connection to horses and the effect it has on him. Part travel adventure and shamanic quest, this is the story of how one family found a gateway into understanding their sonâ€™s life.
The screening was held at WXXI's Studios and followed by a panel discussion.
