Les Dragons

A Film by Paul Méranger

Synopsis

«The Dragons» is a documentary film (built on a succession of portraits and self- portraits) about the daily life of young autist pupils in their classroom. A microphone and a camera have been given to the six kids of the classroom in a total freedom and experimentation spirit. Each in turns (with handheld cameras), the children will invite us to discover their worlds and subjectivities.
If you think that people with autism are all the same: you’re totally wrong and that’s precisely what Ilane, Adrian, Guillaume, Robine, Lucas and Simon will show you!
