Sia’s movie “Music” is about an autistic girl named Music. This movie is extremely ableist and dangerous to the autistic community. This movie stars Maddie Ziegler, who you may know from dance moms and who is not autistic. That brings up the first problem in this movie Sia did not cast an autistic actor in that role. Really there was not a single autistic person on this set. Which means that people without autism made 100% of the decisions on how to portray autism. Secondly this movie depicts the main character Music having a breakdown where she is physically restrained, twice. This is extremely mis informed and is dangerous for multiple reasons. It is never okay to physically restrain a person even more so an autistic person especially when they are having a breakdown. Seeing this could make people think that’s an appropriate way to handle that situation which endangers the lives of autistic people. If someone was to restrain them incorrectly or too forcefully they could be injured or even killed. It is dangerous and receiving this nomination gives it more light encouraging people to watch what is supposed to be a good film. And winning the category makes people want to watch it giving more and more people this depiction of autism and how to handle it. And gives more light to this ableist artist, Sia, for continuing to make this movie even though the autistic community told her how dangerous this was.
