Sandrine Bonnire's sole directorial effort to date is a profoundly personal and affecting documentary about her younger sister Sabine, who was diagnosed with a form of progressive autism following years of misunderstanding and psychological suffering. Pronounced as "the most beautiful film that Cannes has given us this year...It's cinema at its purest." - winning the FIPRESCI prize in 2007 at Cannes in the first year of its release.


Elle s'appelle Sabine
Le tout premier film dont l'actrice Sandrine Bonnaire a signé la réalisation est un documentaire personnel et touchant sur sa jeune sœur Sabine chez qui a été diagnostiquée une forme d'autisme progressif après des années d'incompréhension et de souffrance psychologique. « Le plus beau film présenté à Cannes cette année... Du cinéma à l'état le plus pur … », a décrété la critique internationale qui lui a d'ailleurs décerné, en 2007, le prix FIPRESCI, qui vise à soutenir le cinéma de genre, risqué, original et personnel.



Adults Count! A survey on Youth and Adults with ASDs in Ontario

It has been two decades since there has been a provincial survey on adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Ontario. Since the 1990s, there have been major changes to the population of adults that are identified with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many adults seen in clinical practice report that their ASD and related symptoms provide challenges that are not addressed.

Adults Count! is a province-wide survey that will provide important information of the profiles and needs of youth and adults on the Autism Spectrum.

To receive information about Adults Count! or to participate in this survey, contact: adult.survey@redpathcentre.ca or 416-920-4999 x 0165 or visit
Redpath Centre's website.Click here for the flier.
