Autism in the cinema: The Reason I Jump

Based on the book by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump tells the stories of autistic children across continents, attempting to explain their non-verbal outlook on life through their sensory perceptions. The film has a limited cinema release at the moment. Funded by Netflix, it is likely to be available on the streaming platform at a later date.
