Description

Special Guest Guy Fiorita Attending

In the inspirational documentary Mole Man, Ron Heist is 66 years old, autistic and a gifted craftsman living in Western Pennsylvania. He spends his days building an intricate, 50-room, maze-like structure made of found materials in his parents’ backyard. Following the death of his father, his 90-year-old mother, siblings, and friends are unsure of what to do next and what may be best for Ron going forward. Wanting to keep Ron in his home, his friends hatch an idea to find a “hidden mansion” that may hold untold treasure, which Ron insists resides in the neighboring forest.

Ron and director Guy Fiorita first met while filming an episode of the History Channel show American Pickers, which led to the creation of Mole Man. A part of the “Lost Generation” of undiagnosed autistic individuals, Ron’s story is one of perseverance, innovation and the power of family.
