Relaxed, autism-friendly screenings of this film are available here.

Based on the bestselling book in which Naoki Higashida, a 13-year-old nonspeaking autistic boy, vividly explains his experience of the world, The Reason I Jump is a beautifully cinematic examination of what autism feels like.

The film blends Higashida's revelatory descriptions of autism with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people from around the world, opening a window into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe.

Director Jerry Rothwell (Donor Unknown, Town of Runners, How to Change the World) has woven a sensually rich tapestry that will leave you with a new, profound understanding of the world.

This event is part of Film Feels Hopeful, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk.

Tuesday 22 June, 18:20 - this screening will be followed by an in-person Q&A with director Jerry Rothwell.
