Spectrum By Jill Jones

This film tackles the controversy behind autism and explains what autism looks like for the individuals who have it. 

The film features interviews from several people clinically diagnosed with autism; together, this group begins breaking down what their isolated experiences with autism look like on a sensory perception spectrum. The filmmakers did a fantastic job explaining, in detail, that autism should be looked at as a blessing rather than a curse. They creatively painted a picture of autism that counteracts its typical portrayal in the media.

I appreciated the heart of this film. It was produced on a modest budget, but it makes up for it by executing its ideas in a direct way. It was refreshing to observe a snippet of the beauty inside an autistic person’s mind.
