Autism Queensland’s very own Caitlin Taggart was a consultant for the Arenamedia team during production of documentary Because We have Each Other and we are excited to share that Brisbane International Film Festival (BIFF) will be hosting the Queensland premiere at the end of the month at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Contains adults themes + coarse language (Suitable for ages 15+).
An intimate documentary five years in the making, Because We Have Each Other chronicles the life of Janet and Buddha and their five adult children.
They’re a neurodiverse family on the working-class fringe. With too many pets and a whole lot of bills to pay, they’re dreaming of bigger futures in a society that refuses to see them. Life has been hard, and blended families can be messy. But amidst the chaos, their love is as real as it is unconventional.
At times deeply funny, this wondrous film examines the hopes and heartbreaks of one family as they invite us into their extraordinary home.
Director: Sari Braithwaite
