Loading Docs 2019 - Meet Munch Jr

Web (Full Length) – 2019

I used to have this kind of fear that he wouldn't have any friends...and I feel it's a bit selfish to have that because he's happy.
– Nikau's Mum Donna talks about her son
I really like ties. I've got like, five ties.
– Nikau talks about his interests
Ever since I was a little kid I've been really interested in puppets. I wanna be like, a puppeteer...
– Nikau Cowley
The film is basically about the unconditional love I have for my son and his gift that is Asperger syndrome. I want to show the audience what Nikau sees rather than what we or the general public see when we make judgements on an autistic child’s behavior. I hope that by switching perspectives audiences will have a greater and more human understanding of autism.
– Director Ali Cowley on Meeet Munch Jr, Coconet TV website, September 2019
