An animated documentary exploring neurodiversities such as dyslexia, following the journey of an ant as a metaphor for functioning outside of a system.
The film explores an area of Tom’s life by looking back at a childhood hobby, the collection of insects, and the problems he experienced when he was younger and still as an adult today. Some days Tom can wake up and not be able to remember his full address and other days he can. However the previous hobby and study of insects always remained.
The film is a self reflection on his own journey through life and of feeling out of place in the world.
‘Diffrerent’ aims to explore a positive attitude towards dyslexia in society.
