THE REASON I JUMPDocumentaries
Director Jerry Rothwell (How to Change the World, 2015) draws detailed and intimate portraits of nonspeaking autistic people.
The words of Naoki Higashida, an autistic teenager who wrote a book of the same name, are our guide through the lives of Nonverbal characters as we explore their experiences in a poetic and nuanced light. From the density of India to quiet, suburban America, The Reason I Jump envelops us in their feelings and stories and forges a genuine connection. Rothwell’s textured soundscapes and focused cinematography paint a sensory canvas, illuminating the subjects’ unique perspectives and culminating in a film that speaks volumes for those who cannot communicate verbally.
