The My Favorite Films series continues with a screening of the Belgian film, Ben X.
Ben is a bit different. He has a mild form of autism and as a result he has difficulties with "normal" communication and often seems to be living in another universe...one in which he's the courageous hero of computer gaming. Ben is tormented by classmates and ignored by teachers until the persecution pushing him over the edge. His online female companion and compatriot helps him devise the perfect plan for revenge.
This Grand Prix winner of the Montreal World Film Festival and Red Star Award Winner at the Palm Springs International Film Festival will inform and surprise you, and take you into the tormented but brilliant inner world of Ben X.
