The short animation “I am Dyslexic” observes the struggle of being dyslexic in our current educational system. The film uses strong metaphors to portray these emotions, as we follow a little boy in his journey to climb a mountain in a world made of books. The film takes a look not only at dyslexia itself, but also at the loneliness and disillusionment that can come along with it.
After showing at the recent Manchester International Film Festival in March 2017, the film is going on to be screened at the Oxford International Film Festival in May 2017. The festival celebrates both international and local filmmaking talent. Featuring stars like Timothy Spall and Stef Dawson, the festival certainly makes for an international film experience.
