The Wall (2012 documentary film)
In 2012 a documentary film made by Sophie Robert about autism was the subject of a court case in France. The name of the film was "The Wall", the alternative full name of the film is "The Wall or psychoanalysis put to the test for autism". The film considers the question of is psychoanalysis a suitable treatment for autism.
Several of the people interviewed in the film sued Ms Roberts. The three plaintiffs (Eric Laurent, Esthela Solano, and Alexandre Stevens) expressed the view that they hold intellectual property rights to the footage filmed by Ms Roberts and that she edited it without their consent and thus distorted their comments.
