Drawing on Naoki Higashida’s book, the multi-award-winning The Reason I Jump follows five young people living with autism, creating a fascinating and considered exploration of autism. 

 

Using Naoki Higashida’s book – written when the author was 13 - as a starting point Jerry Rothwell’s acclaimed film focuses on five autistic young people, telling their stories and creating a cinematic exploration of their experiences. 

 

The film offers a unique opportunity to share the worlds of its subjects and those around them – from England to America, India to Sierra Leone – and what develops is a documentary that has a rare power to challenge expectations.

 

“For many viewers, this compassionate, creative documentary will open ears and eyes in equal measure.” Variety.
