Wonderfully emotional script with no shortage of both heartwarming and heart-wrenching moments.

A FILM WITH A PURPOSE

The conversation around inclusion has focused on race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, while people with disabilities have remained on the sidelines. Our film is here to remind the world:

There is no DIVERSITY                 without DISABILITY.

Why Us?

The world of Jackie & The Rats is extraordinary, literally. It’s not ordinary. It’s different. It’s specific. In order to tell this story, it requires a long, honest, foundational understanding of the characters and their dispositions. Our team is this story. Jackie is based on our executive producer, Amanda Booth, and Leo is based on her son, Micah. Our producer, Sage Price, grew up with a non-verbal big brother, Travis, who also has Down syndrome and autism. Our directors, Nadav and Erez, are essentially Micah’s uncles, and have witnessed his growth since he was six months old. In addition, they have experience directing Micah on camera. Working with a non-verbal child actor is a very unique assignment, and our team’s cumulative love and understanding of Jackie’s world is, frankly put, unmatched.
