Film Synopsis

Louis is an eight-year old boy starting a new school. With the help of the teacher, he gets ready to introduce his class by removing his shoes. He explains how this makes him feel safe and gives the class an insight into his internal world, sharing his favorite hobbies as well as the things he fears. This short is told entirely from Louis’ perspective, with the animated style depicting his experience of the world as a person with Autism. The film is a valuable resource for discussing autism as well as how filmmaking can be used to tell stories from diverse perspectives.
