Director Statement

I wanted to look into the case of autistic children who have long been considered apart. During my teenage career, I met two who moved me enormously.
One of them, in my class, intrigued me: his general appearance did not show his peculiarity; however, I remember that he reproduced, day after day, the same approach to people and things in life obsessively. I have learned that autistic children can be much smarter than most of us, because they know how to fix themselves and concentrate until they have mastered the only subject that concerns them, without worrying about what is affecting them, surrounds, unlike most people whose attention is focused on a multiple environment.The other case upset me: he had very high autism and couldn't communicate; his only reactions could remain misunderstood; we could have associated it with a Down's syndrome handicap which was not however one. The child seemed lost in the midst of so-called "normal" people: I could feel his distress through his deep gaze that had captured my attention and my interest in his person. Many people feared him like the plague, as if he was going to contaminate them and avoided approaching him; I was very sad because he wanted only a little affection and attention. Sadly, the fate has gone on him, depriving him of a life filled with incomparable parental love.The child in my story is a pure invention based on the relationship between people with autism and the world around them. Marc is a young autistic who communicates with others with difficulty, thereby having peculiarities that make him an introverted being. Staying at home, his refuge, he discovers the world of the internet and quickly becomes accustomed to the difficulties that ordinary people can encounter. His memory is focused only on what interests him; therefore, he gradually becomes a true computer genius by ranking among the Hackers. Furthermore, I want to present his autism as an intelligence that many do not detect. My hero does not use his difference as a handicap but as an overcapacity. Autism is also an example among others because everyone has weaknesses. My theory on the subject is based on the strength that an autistic person can acquire through courage and determination. It is also a message of hope for those who do not believe it when everything is really possible.Furthermore, I also wanted to highlight the heroic side and not the victim of the situation. Children's films often depict handicapped little heroes who save the world. But in almost all of the films in which people with autism are the main characters, they are presented in such a way as to be supported or saved from a situation. In Marc’s case, no one helps him and he’s the only one who saves the world. This is another message of hope to value children - regardless of their disability - who could dream of being heroes without being considered "normal".
