How I Learned to Fly
A young autistic boy in the middle of a pandemic is forced to move across country when his father loses his job. Struggling to make connections, he becomes rigid in his routines. With the help of his parents, he begins to search for connections. Through many comical attempts, he finds his community and learns to fly. This poignant film highlights the challenges many children with disabilities have faced during the Covid 19 pandemic.
In this film, I explore the experience of being misgendered and not accepted as a transgender person through movement on aerial rope/corde lisse.
