The Autism documentary that will completely and totally shock you

A few days ago, I received an email from a man named David, an autistic from France. He sent me a link to a documentary called “The wall or psychoanalysis put to the test for autism“.

The documentary that you are about to see was not filmed in the 1940’s although you will think it was. This film, out of France, was released in September, 2011 by Sophie Robert.

In just 52 minutes, you will see the culmination of 4 years of investigations among psychiatrists and psychoanalysis practitioners in France. Robert met over 40 professionals in putting this documentary together and yet, now that it is complete, 3 of those professionals are suing Robert in an effort to have the movie banned by the court.

I don’t want to give it all away but you will see Autism described as madness, a result of incest (or incestuous needs), a mother’s failing, a father’s failing and so much more. You will see a family that lived with and against this system.

This is a french film which means that English subtitles had to be added and they can be difficult to read at times. But it is still very much worth it to watch this film.

Awareness is more than just making the world understand Autism… it also means putting the past behind us and making things right. And watching this, while it may be painful or frustrating, it is necessary.

Now that you have seen the film, please check out where every effort is being made to stop the abuse of autistics in France.

Starting to get international attention, they are planning on holding a press conference on January 26th in New York City to launch an international petition against the abuse of autistics in France.

Coincidentally, that is also the date that Sophie Robert will receive her court decision… will the movie be banned or not?

Share this movie. The more people that know the truth, the sooner this “psychoanalysis” can be stopped.

    As a practicing psychotherapist & mother of an autistic child, I am not surprised by the attitudes & beliefs held by these psychoanalysts. I have personally had to educate many collegues about autism, and I won’t even get into what I was taught about ASD during my own training 15 years ago.The good news is that the current generation of therapists will be so much better trained & informed, due to the efforts of parents and organizations to inform and educate.
    Keep up the good work Stuart, and keep spreading the info, parents!

    Shock is an understatement. How dare they insinuate that loving parents, that would go to the end of the earth to see their children thrive, are the cause of autism and that autism is psychosis. What sort of backward nation is this? They need to sort themselves out quick smart before they come under intense international criticism.

    PS. Just explained this to my daughter.. even she said “How does that work.. I’m also the way I am because of your parenting and I don’t have autism.” Even my 12 year old gets it.

I am afraid I may be too senstive at the moment to watch it. Here is the link The Autism documentary that will completely and totally shock you. […]
