Free Screening: Let Me Be Me


You’re invited to join us for a theatrical screening* of Let Me Be Me, followed by an in-person conversation with directors Dan Crane and Katie Taber, moderated by film critic Scott Mantz.

* Masks are recommended for attendees, but not required.

When the Westphal family learned that their 6-year-old Kyle was on the Autism spectrum, they feared they might never develop a real connection to their child. Withdrawn and constantly wrapping himself in fabric and blankets, Kyle was retreating from the world around him. Determined to find a way to connect, his parents embarked on an intense and radical journey which involved compassionately joining Kyle in his unique behaviors. Twenty years later, the entire family looks back at Kyle’s journey with candor and humor. Let Me Be Me reveals what happens when a boy who used fabric as his shield to hide himself grows up to become a fashion designer, forging connections with friends and family along the way.

 
2022, 75 minutes, color | Written by Dan Crane | Directed by Dan Crane, Katie Taber | Featuring Kyle Westphal, Westphal family | Produced by Joe Plummer | Executive Produced by Jenifer Westphal
