In a small valley in the Luberon hills, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, lies the Ferme du Grand Réal: an establishment for adults suffering from severe personality disorders, particularly autism, since early childhood. Throughout the year, residents work in close contact with nature and take part in workshops on cinema and acting. Where words are scarce, Dire son silence explores the range of emotions with which they build their relationships with others. The film features Arlette, Ludovic, Kevin, Benjamin, Chantal, Armand and François, aged between 24 and 53, in a succession of "cinematographic tableaux". In this way, Dire son silence progresses through the double movement of sequences captured in everyday life and during these artistic practice workshops.
