Animated Minds is a series of short animated documentaries which use real testimony from people who have experienced different forms of mental distress. A single aim underpins all the films: to help dispel myths and misconceptions about ‘mental illness’ by giving a voice to those who experience these various difficulties first hand.
An Alien In The Playground is a brilliant marriage of an authentic, devastating narrative and imaginative, ingenious, deeply sympathetic animation. It’s an invaluable resource for families, schools, and anyone whose life has been complicated in some way by somebody on the autistic spectrum. – Nick Hornby
