THE REASON I JUMP: Q&A

Tuesday 22nd June, 2021

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.

On Tuesday 22 June we welcomed Jerry for an in-person Q&A. Hosted by journalist Carol Nahra.
