Ben Stamper | filmmaker

For the past three years, award-winning director, Ben Stamper has been following the life and work of New Jersey-based artist Justin Canha, a 24 year old autistic whose mind races with cartoon images and movie dialogue.

In his final year of filming, Ben is documenting Justin’s daily life and creative process which will be part of his feature length documentary, Don’t Foil My Plans.

This film’s objective is twofold: to enable Justin to tell his story on his terms and to help shift the public dialogue away from“What are we going to do with all of the new autistic adults?”  To, “How can we empower this autistic generation to reach their full potential in the work place, in higher education and as leaders in the public sphere?”
