Aspie Seeks Love

Aspie Seeks Love is a documentary which follows a fearless outsider who has been searching for love longer than many of us have been alive. David Matthews has spent the past twenty years posting personal ad fliers to telephone poles seeking love – fliers that double as art pieces featuring witty, humorous prose, pop culture references, and suave photos of the artist. He wasn’t diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome until age forty-one, at which point his entire life changed, including his strategy for winning the love of women and achieving his artistic dreams.   Directed by Julie Sokolow and executive produced by Danny Yourd of ANIMAL, the company behind the Sundance-winningBlood Brother.

“Aspie Seeks Love is engaging, funny, thought provoking and emotive. While watching the film, you quickly forget that you are watching a man with Aspberger’s syndrome, instead you just see a man who is searching for love.  You become immersed in his story.”
