Compelling Story of Autistic Children to Debut Dec. 17 in Los Angeles

"Kids With Cameras" Details Innovative Los Angeles Film Camp

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2009) - "Kids With Cameras," a documentary by filmmaker Alex Rotaru, presented by Polaris Media Group and produced by Ifavor Entertainment, Inc., that tells the heartwarming and inspirational story of children with autism and Asperger's syndrome, debuts in Los Angeles on December 17, 2009.

The film follows the challenges and triumphs of autistic children participating in the "Celluloid Heroes Movie Camp" in Los Angeles. It is hosted by non-profit organization Actors for Autism, and taught by award-winning educator Brad Koepenick. Actress Annie Potts provides the narration.

In fifteen years' experience teaching the "Celluloid Heroes Movie Camp" he created, Koepenick has developed a methodology of student involvement which has proven to be particularly well suited to inspire creative work from students on the autistic spectrum -- from severely non-functional, to the lightest forms of Asperger's Syndrome.

"Kids With Cameras," produced and directed by award-winning, Los Angeles-based, Romanian-born Alex Rotaru, is the first of a series of documentaries to be presented by Polaris Media Group, an international entrepreneurial skills training company.

"Although recent research indicates that developing the creative and acting abilities of autistic children significantly improves their social interaction skills," explains Rotaru, "these methods are generally overlooked as therapeutic tools. Our film looks at several forms of art therapy as possible answers to helping these children bridge the gap that separates them from society."

"We're very proud to be involved in 'Kids With Cameras,'" said Shane Krider, CEO and founder of Polaris. "At Polaris, we will always strive to present inspiring stories of exceptional people achieving success who have perhaps been overlooked by the mainstream media."

Polaris will host a theatrical screening of "Kids With Cameras" at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles on December 17, 2009.
