HamptonsFilm’s Virtual Cinema is Back

Still image from “The Reason I Jump,” Jerry Rothwell’s moving documentary.

To kick off the new year, HamptonsFilm Virtual Cinema’s Now Showing platform offers “The Reason I Jump,” Jerry Rothwell’s moving documentary that Variety calls “as emotionally piercing as it is beautiful to behold.”

Based on the best-selling book by Naoki Higashida, this immersive documentary explores the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. The film is a sensually rich tapestry that leads us to Naoki’s core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.
