Two films about persons on the autism spectrum show that society and the authorities are not always willing to accept people with developmental disabilities the way they are.
At the age of thirty-three, Minh Tâm’s life is entirely devoted to bringing up her son who is on the autism spectrum. But one day she meets Olivier who makes her question the way she had chosen to live.

The film follows mental health professionals and patients who chose to see a psychological crisis not as an illness, but as an opportunity for growth and development.
The film will be introduced by human-rights photographer and filmmaker Phil Borges.
