An interview with director Jerry Rothwell, who presented his latest documentary, The Reason I Jump, in the international competition in 2020 One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in Prague, Czech Republic. The film translates a book of the same name that had been written by Japanese author Naoki Higashida as a child, and illustrates his life and experience of living with autism. In this interview, Rothwell talks about the challenge of translating this book into the film and how meeting the author influenced his work. He also talks about the important sensory dimension of the film, his knowledge on the subject matter before he began working on the project and more.

The Reason I Jump: How do children and adolescents with autistic spectrum disorders experience the world? An illustrative example is provided in a book by Japanese author Naoki Higashida, whose reflections on his own experience with autism led to the making of a film of the same name.

Jerry Rothwell is an award winning documentary filmmaker. We met through a network of connections. He is next door neighbour to the artist Jane Churchill who we interviewed recently and he also has a link with Jim, my running friend who we also recorded a podcast with a few weeks ago.

Jerry has just made a documentary called Town of Runners. It premiers today April 10th in London. The film follows the fortunes of coach Sentayehu Eshetu and three of his young hopefuls from school to national level athletics. He is a coach with a difference, who has dedicated himself to coaching runners, with great success and has literally turned the town into a 'town of runners'. 200 runners appear at dawn each day to take part in a hill session.

Sentayehu will be over in the UK with the three girls and will be speaking at the brighton Marathon. The film will be shown at the Duke of Yorks and then appears in the Tribeck film festival in New York on April 19th and from April 20th will be appearing in UK cinemas.

It was fascinating talking with Jerry about the process of making a documentary and the relationships that develop over time as the documentary progresses and reveals intimacies that are being openly explored maybe for the first time. We could have carried on talking all afternoon...
