Austin filmmaker Michael Orion Scott already premiered Over the Hills and Far Away, his moving documentary about autism and its impact on a local family, at the Sundance Film Festival in January, which is when we profiled him in our pages. Here's what Marc Savlov had to say about the film:

"Over the Hills and Far Away is a documentary that opens a door to new perceptions of what it means to be autistic, what it means to be the parents of an autistic child, and what Western medical practice too often fails to include in its prescription for wellness of all kinds: the power of the spirit."

Go here to read the Chron's interview with Scott.

Over the Hills and Far Away screens at SXSW Film tomorrow (March 17), 11am, at the Paramount; Thursday, March 19, 1:30pm, at the Alamo South Lamar; and Friday, March 20, 7pm, at the Austin Convention Center.
