MOLE MAN Directed by Guy Fiorita,
Mole Man is the story of Outside Architect Ron Heist. Ron is a 66-year-old autistic man who built a 50-room structure solely of scrap materials, on the land behind his parent’s home in Western Pennsylvania. His home was built without the use of nails or mortar. Ron’s home keeps on expanding, as he collects, classiﬁes and displays objects from a deserted cluster of homes in the woods. When we meet him, Ron is living with his aging parents. In an effort to keep him in his home, Ron’s friends team up in search of a mystical mansion that Ron insists lays abandoned in the forest. Mole Man examines the interplay between autism and creativity. Ron, with idiosyncrasies and an eagerness to talk about them, is an ardent archivist of work that loved ones and caregivers consider odd but not necessarily important. This is the story of an extraordinary life, a family, and the beauty of thinking differently
