Shameful – A film about Autism in France

 

Shameful is the creation of Film makers Alex Plank, founder of Wrong Planet and Noah Trevino.

 

This documentary film examines and exposes the lack of services available to Autistic people in France.

The underlying cause seems to be a culture within parts of the French medical profession that fails or even refuses to recognize Autism as a developmental disorder and instead labels it as a psychosis caused by mothers.

 

According to the Official Shameful website

‘One study conducted by @AutismeFrance estimated that 80% of French Autistic children are not even allowed to go to school’

Shameful will initially be screened at film festivals, with the hope that it can go on to be screened at theaters worldwide.
