Filming is very much underway for "The Ghost at the Banquet."

A documentary film about the stigma against those with developmental disabilities is due to be wrapped up with shooting this November. Correy Lennox lives in New Mexico and is the father of a child with autism. The continual and ubiquitous rape, torture, and murder of those with developmental disabilities brought on by a culture which devalues this group of people by continually finding it acceptable to call people "retard" was the impetus for this film. Commentators include actor Chris Burke of "Life Goes On" fame, and author Rachel Simon, who wrote "Riding the Bus with My Sister."
