Short Film Profile

Wie ich bin

-Iā€™m like a hermit on an island-. This is what Patrick writes about his life as an autistic boy who lives caught in his own body. With indelible imagery, the film follows him at school, with family, and by himself, and transcribes his innermost thoughts onto the screen to reveal his point of view, which is normally muffled by his condition. What is revealed is a complex, philosophical soul. This shows one mission that movies can accomplish ā€” giving us insight -not pity, but sympathy- into another's life.
