37th Cambridge Film Festival: Music Therapy and Autism Documentary

Operation Syncopation: A new documentary film on music therapy and autism
Running time 100 mins.

This ground-breaking documentary follows Professor Amelia Oldfield as she revisits ten families who received music therapy from her over fifteen years ago, and explores the impact of the therapy on the life trajectories of young people with autism. Mixing archive footage from the original research, recordings of the sessions with Amelia Oldfield and the families, and specially shot interviews with Anglia Ruskin University music therapists, Operation Syncopation offers an unprecedented window into the work of the music therapist and the development of ways for parent and child to communicate. Directed by Maxim Thompson, who was one of Professor Oldfield’s patients as a child.
