A CHARITY for children with autism have given filmgoers a rare treat.

Stevenage-based Tracks - a charity that provides care and support to pre-school children with autism and communication disorders - organised a special screening of the film Snow Cake, which depicts the life of an autistic woman - played by Sigourney Weaver - whose daughter dies in a car accident.

After the screening, audience members at the Campus West Theatre in Welwyn Garden City enjoyed a question and answer session with producer Gina Carter and Ros Blackburn, who taught Sigourney Weaver how to play an autistic woman.

The Tracks charity caters for children aged between two and five and is open from 1pm to 4.30pm on Mondays and Thursdays.
