Based on Naoki Higashida's best-selling nonfiction book of the same name, director Jerry Rothwell takes the viewer inside the experience of autism spectrum disorder, using all the cinematic tools available to create a graceful sensory experience of neurodiverse life. Like Notes on Blindness (MFF2016), this Sundance audience award-winning film is not to be missed if you seek to gain humane, experiential understanding of those who experience our world through different sensory lenses.
