Video DVD - Autism and Me

by: Rory Hoy


Concept:

Only people with autism truly know what it's like to be autistic - and even then, every autistic individual is unique! This award-winning short film by Rory Hoy, an 18-year-old filmmaker with autism, provides a privileged glimpse into his autistic world, letting us take a journey through his everyday experience and see it through his eyes.

Description:

In easy, accessible terms, Rory explains what having autism means for everyday functioning: what it’s like, for instance, not to have the natural inclination to respond to someone who calls you by your name, or someone who waves at you; what it’s like to take someone literally when actually they have used a figure of speech. He describes the confusion caused by high noise levels, crowded environments and even by his own emotions and physical sensations, as well as the security and comfort found in routines, forward planning and having thoughtful, calm and loving people around him. This engaging, insightful and light-hearted film will be invaluable to people with autism, their friends and family, and to professionals working with them. A booklet explaining the film, also compiled by the author, accompanies the DVD.

Reviews:

This is a cheerful, fast-moving and optimistic 20-minute film snapshot of Rory’s life. He made this film to try and explain exactly what it is like to have autism and help raise awareness and understanding of those like him who have the condition… This DVD could be used in a variety of ways to enhance people’s understanding and awareness and I think the style and content makes it suitable for a wide-ranging audience.’
