The short film by The New York Times shows us what autism feels like from the perspective of people who have the condition. It can often be hard to describe through words what a mental condition is like. It can be hard to fully understand the ways in which people with autism experience the world in a different way.


This film does an amazing job of showing us what and ordinary day feels like when you have autism. Instead of using bland medical jargon and talking about brain chemistry, this film shows us the real impact autism has on everyday life. It shows us the positives of the condition, as well as the limitations it can put on people.

It follows one man who’s having a perfectly ordinary day. In some ways, it’s no different from anyone else’s, but through following him, we learn about the sometimes subtle, sometimes significant ways that autism affects him. It’s really eye-opening to see the silent struggles and inner thoughts of someone with the condition.
