The Reason I Jump

July 11, 2021 10:00 am

Feature Documentary | 2020 | UK | 88 min | Directed by Jerry Rothwell | Madman

Winner, Audience Award, Sundance Film Festival 2020
Winner, Impact Award, Vancouver Film Festival 2020

Drawing on Naoki Higashida’s book, the multi-award winning The Reason I Jump follows five young people living with autism, creating a fascinating and considered exploration of autism. 

Using Naoki Higashida’s book – written when the author was 13 – as a starting point Jerry Rothwell’s acclaimed film focuses on five autistic young people, telling their stories and creating a cinematic exploration of their experiences. 

The film offers a unique opportunity to share the worlds of its subjects and those around them – from England to America, India to Sierra Leone – and what develops is a documentary that has a rare power to challenge expectations.

 “For many viewers, this compassionate, creative documentary will open ears and eyes in equal measure.” – Variety
