Let Me Be Me Doc Trailer

"I used to use fabric as a way to hide myself. But now its become a way for me to show myself." Greenwich Ent. has released an official trailer for the documentary film Let Me Be Me, arriving in the US in theaters and on VOD late in February. This heartwarming, inspiring film is about a family that learns to connect with their autistic son through a radical treatment program. Withdrawn and constantly wrapping himself in fabric and blankets, Kyle was retreating from the world around him when he was very young and his parents weren't sure how to help. 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. This looks like an inspiring, authentic story of growth, not only in learning to understand Kyle, but it's also a moving story of appreciating what makes someone who they are. "Everyone's on their own journey. I just want to be me."

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Dan Crane & Katie Taber's doc Let Me Be Me, from YouTube:
