Latest News from the Cosmos (89 min.)

Dir. Julie Bertuccelli

 

For most of her life, Hélène, an autistic child who lived with her parents in rural France, did not communicate. And then, at the age of 21-with no formal schooling and never taught to read or write-she did. By arranging laminated alphabet letters, Hélène created words, then phrases and finally a book, one letter at a time. Director Julie Bertuccelli prompts us to contemplate the nature of creativity and communication and the hidden potential in humans of all abilities.
