Spectrospective 2019

This Sensory Friendly session of The LEGO Movie 2 will feature a screening of the short film “Spectrospective: Stories of Autism 2019”.

 

Spectrospective is an annual short film produced by Amaze and starring the autism community, which aims to build awareness and understanding about autism in the wider community by sharing lived experiences.

This year, Spectrospective is all about work – whether it’s work experience, paid employment or volunteering. You’ll hear stories from autistic people about their experience, challenges and ambitions. Spectrospective aims to break down myths around autism and work, and help employers understand how they can provide more opportunity for autistic employees.

  • It's been many years since Mary Poppins visited Jane and Michael Banks and worked as their magical nanny. Now grown, Michael (Ben Whishaw) is a widower with three children: Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh) and Georgie (Joel Dawson). When the bank is about to repossess his childhood home after he misses several payments, his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) helps him search through their father's papers for the shares they own in the bank.

    Meanwhile, as the children head off across the park to buy some groceries, Georgie plays with a kite that his father threw out. It nearly pulls him into the air, but he's saved by a lamplighter named Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda). When the kite returns to the ground, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) is holding onto it and announces she's come to London to be the children's nanny.
