Award-winning director Jerry Rothwell's compelling documentary is a rare cinematic and sensorial insight into the world of non-speaking autistic people.

Based on the bestselling book by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump blends Higashida’s revelatory descriptions of his autism, written when he was just 13, with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people, opening a window into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe.

This film will start promptly 5 minutes after the advertised start time and will play without ads or trailers.
