"Based on the book by 13-year-old Naoki Higashida, 'The Reason I Jump' is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experinces of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. The film opens a window for audiences into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe." (Known methods for nonspeaking autistic people to communicate in writing are controversial. The book's authenticity is unproven.)
