The Reason I Jump
feature documentary

The Reason I Jump is an immersive cinematic experience of nonspeaking autistic people across the world. Based on a book written by Naoki Higashida when he was just 13. The film follows a young Japanese boy on a journey through an epic landscape. As a maelstrom of thoughts, feelings, impulses, and memories affects his every action, he gradually discovers what his autism means to him, how his perception of the world differs
from others’, and why he acts the way he does—the reason he jumps.

Variety “as emotionally piercing as it is beautiful to behold”
