Montclair Film Festival highlights film on Autism in Newark
"Best Kept Secret" is a feature-length documentary about the struggles of JFK teacher Janet Mino, a veteran educator who specializes in helping severely autistic kids. The film follows Mino as she prepares six young men at JFK for the harsh realities of life once they "fall of the cliff" — Mino's words for what happens when they age out of the public school system at 21.
