Wretches & Jabberers is a documentary film directed by – and, with Douglas Biklen, co-produced by – Gerardine Wurzburg about two autistic men who travel the world helping other autistic people break out of their isolation. It opened in theaters in New York and California on July 30, 2010.[1][2]

The use of facilitated communication is shown throughout the film and was promoted by its producers. Although controversial,[3][4] Biklen continues to promote this methodology through other media.
