Alien To The World is a film about my personal experiences with Aspergers Syndrome that I made for my Masters dissertation at Bangor University.
Thanks to everyone who helped me make this project a reality.
“Autism is not a puzzle, nor a disease. Autism is a challenge.” -Trisha van Berkel
A simple but apt description for not only the wider Autistic Spectrum but also the condition known as Aspergers Syndrome. A form of Autism that affects the social and functional abilities of those who have it, many do not realise the true effect it has on someone who has it.
Alien To The World is an attempt to rectify this, offering a glimpse into how one person is affected by the condition on a daily basis and how they struggle to cope with the things most people take for granted. This film offers a personal, and sometimes humorous, view of both what it is like to live with Aspergers Syndrome and how a person with Aspergers views a world which by and large does not accept them.
Alien To The World is based on the personal experiences of writer and director Robert Mann, himself diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, and features music by American musician Lindsey Nebeker, who has a diagnosis of Autism.
