THE REASON I JUMP

THE REASON I JUMP

The Reason I Jump. USA/United Kingdom 2020. Director: Jerry Rothwell. Screenplay:  Naoki Higashida. 94 Min. Documentary. OV w/Eng. Suitable from age 6. Recommended from age 14.

A VISUALLY STUNNING DOCUMENTARY THAT MOVINGLY EXPLORES THE WORLD OF YOUNG PEOPLE WITH AUTISM.

They come from all over the world, yet they share a com­mon fate: young autis­tic peop­le who can­not speak. Based on Naoki Higashida’s best­sel­ler of the same name, which descri­bed his life as an autis­tic per­son at the age of 13, THE REASON I JUMP por­trays remar­kab­le peop­le who give an inti­ma­te insight into their lives. Sounds, images, asso­cia­ti­ons, and words open a win­dow to an over­whel­ming, sen­so­ry uni­ver­se that car­ri­es a mes­sa­ge at its core: Not being able to speak does not mean the­re is not­hing to say.

Available in cine­mas | via Video-on-Demand (VoD) exclu­si­ve­ly for school clas­ses and groups
