The Reason I Jump (Relaxed Screening)12A

Directed by Jerry Rothwell | UK/USA | 2020 | 1h 22m | Starring David Mitchell, Jordan O’Donegan, Jim Fujiwara

Based on the bestselling book by Naoki Higashida, this immersive documentary explores neurodiversity through the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. Combining Higashida’s profound descriptions of his autism, written when he was 13 years old, with portraits of five remarkable young people, the film opens a window into an intense, and often joyful, sensory universe.

In order to assist with the accessibility and enjoyment of relaxed screenings of this title for our audiences, the film will be accompanied by a special subtitle stream which will include both subtitling of dialogue as well as warnings of potentially challenging or difficult moments within the film itself. These warnings will focus on moments that could be challenging from a visual, aural, and emotional perspective and will be accompanied by guidance text and symbols alerting viewers to the imminent approach of any such moments.

Reviews

‘Rothwell uses the language of cinema – macro lens closeups, distortion, off-kilter framing and an evocative blend of sound design and score – to convey the autistic experience of the world.’
★★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
