Mission to Lars DVD
Directed by James Moore
Documentary following siblings Kate and William Spicer, as they attempt to arrange a meeting for their autistic brother Tom with his idol, the Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.
Born with Fragile X Syndrome, the commonest cause of inherited learning disability, Tom lives in a care home in Devon.
A heavy metal fan for most of his life, his biggest wish of meeting his idol is taken up by his siblings, journalist Kate and film-maker William, who decide to travel with Tom to America in order to fulfil his dream.
Filmed by William, the documentary charts their road-trip across America in a mobile home, as they try to gain access to one of heavy metal's biggest stars.
