March 14th, we screened Mark Utter's "I am in Here" and tasted three vintages of Ken Veenstra's new Cobblestone Cider. Mark's film was produced with VSA Vermont's support by Emily Anderson and revolves around the typical day of Mark who is nonverbal and autistic. It was held at Cinema Detroit and we discussed it and VSAMI both before and after the film.
