My Curious Documentary
This feature documentary uses the highly successful stage adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' to frame a cinematic exploration of being on the autistic spectrum.
The film uses the story of the play, in which Christopher Boone travels to London to find his mother and solve the mystery of who killed his neighbour’s pet dog, as a spine from which to jump off and explore the journeys of people who are the real life equivalents of the characters in the play.
Dakota, a teenager with autism from the Bronx projects, who travels to Manhattan where he inspires and educates the New York cast (in a similar way to Cian Binchy, who advised the original London cast), and who is now training to be a performer himself at the Central School of Speech and Drama.
