Dir. Jerry Rothwell | 84min, 2020

Based on the best-selling memoir by Naoki Higashida, this immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity centers the experiences of five nonspeaking autistic people from around the world.

Based on the best-selling memoir by Naoki Higashida, this immersive exploration of neurodiversity centers the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. The film weaves together Higashida’s personal insights into autism—written when he was just 13—with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people, creating a rich cinematic tapestry in support of their perspectives and ideas. Using passages from Higashida’s book to reflect on what his autism means to himself and others, how his perception of the world differs, and why he acts the way he does, The Reason I Jump leads to his core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.
