CBC Short Docs Princess Jack

CBC Short Docs Princess Jack

Princess Jack is a short documentary about a boy with high-functioning autism whose life is filled with make-believe. The film follows Jack as he introduces us to his particular tastes in wardrobe and carefully applies costume makeup, and patiently works his way through sewing classes in the hopes of making his own princess ball-gown — one fit for a debut at the Royal Ball. An intimate portrait of an intelligent child surrounded by family and teachers, Princess Jack presents a vibrant world where fairy tales are real — and anyone can be a princess.
