“Empathy can feel in short supply in today’s world, but the ability to place yourself in someone else’s shoes is an important skill when it comes to understanding others. If it isn’t something you possess in your toolkit, you might need a little help and film (and storytelling in general) is a great aid in eliciting such reactions. Les Chaussures de Louis (Louis’ Shoes) is a short looking to do just that, as it tells its story through the eyes of a young autistic boy in the hope of raising awareness and resonating with viewers.”
The short film “Les chaussures de Louis” by Marion Philippe, Ka Yu Leung, Jean-Géraud Blanc, Théo Jamin focuses on an eight-year-old autistic boy named Louis during his first day in a new school. Faced with the obligation to present himself in front of his comrades, Louis takes care to share the perception of the world far from being singular, his element of reference revolves around his blue shoes.
The creators of the film they relied on the testimonies and experiences of autistic people to be closer to reality.
