Dir Robina Rose
16mm & video
Timing with World Autism Awareness Week, we present Jigsaw, an observational, experimental film which seeks to enter into the perceptual preoccupations/obsessions of the autistic child. Using formal experiment to reflect the alienated world of a group of such children at a dedicated school, this is a deeply immersive, brilliant work. Due to a scarcity of viewing material, the first half will be projected from 16mm film while the second will screen from a digitised video copy.
All are welcome to this relaxed screening.
Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neuro-diverse community and their carers and assistants. More detailed information about these screenings can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed
