Mole Man

Mole Man

Directed by Guy Fiorita

The astonishing story of Ron, a 66-year-old autistic man who has spent the last five decades building a 50-room structure in his parents' backyard. Using no nails or mortar, Ron instead creates perfectly balanced structures from scavenged materials he finds in the woods outside his Western Pennsylvania home. When Ron's father passes away, his siblings are left to figure out what's best for Ron - who has never been officially diagnosed with autism - when his 90-year-old mother can no longer care for him. In an effort to find the money to keep Ron in his home, his friends team up in search of a mythical mansion Ron insists lays abandoned in the forest. But will they be able to find it? And, more importantly, does it even exist? This is the story of an extraordinary life, a family, and the beauty of thinking differently.

Still thinking about this documentary, so I just had to come back to recommend it. I had seen a tiny tid bit about him on American pickers, although you don’t see much about him as a person other then his interests and personality. They did start a go fund me account and I so hope he is able to get some much needed help. Great doc. I didn’t want it to end! I hope they do a part two
