Observational documentary on Britain’s only single sex school for teenage girls with autism. The film follows 15 year old Katie’s obsessive fixation with boys, 14 year old Beth who self harms and and 11 year old Abi a selective mute who’s only had imaginary friends until arriving here.
PRESS: “This superb documentary fulfilled that promise and more. But to say it was only “mythbusting” would be faint praise. Our understanding of autism tends to be so basic…that even a bad documentary could be mythbusting. Girls with Autism was better: mesmeric, sensitive and extremely amusing.” Iona McLaren, The Telegraph
