The Buddy - Everyone Saw This Autistic Boy As A Misfit, One Classmate Saw A Friend // Viddsee.com



Download videos:


Hidayat is an 8-year-old boy tasked to be a buddy to his classmate, Tam, and finds that he is frightened by Tam's erratic behaviour. Despite having Tam's parents and teachers dismiss him as reclusive and "weird", Hidayat chooses to accept Tam as different and tries to understand his behaviour and the two develop special relationship.Although Tam's condition is not explicitly stated, the film addresses the topic of autism, and the lack of knowledge behind this disorder, especially in the 90s. Delivered in the spirit of acceptance, the film aims to portray the innocence of childhood, and centers on Hidayat’s dilemma in doing the right thing for his friend.Directed by Jason Lee (Singapore)Director's Statement:No two autistic persons go about things in exactly the same way and it is incontrovertibly unjust to label them as a mere category. Just like any other individual, they have the ability to experience emotions and to give affection. In 'The Buddy', we see Tam, a primary school boy, who builds a friendship with Hidayat, his classmate-buddy. The friendship is innocent, pure and genuine.Help us SHARE this film!

Yes I agree some autistic kids can be OK like this dude but when you go to a public school and they disrupt the lesson it piss’s me off also one of the autistic kids in my class said your dog is dead to me so I just lost it and started screaming at him and he wasn’t punished for what he said but I was I know I shouldn’t be screaming but what do you expect he said your dog is dead and this other autistic kid has a mental break down every lesson so it disrupted my learning so I don’t agree with kids with special needs in main public schools
Andrea Ong
Okay... does anyone care about the abusive way Tam's mother treated him?

I teared up at this story because when I was in primary 1, I was paired up with a student with mild autism and he was very very smart. Nobody would ever understand him but I did but I'm so happy that I met him because it made me understand more abt children with special needs. Thank you for educating the public. This was most needed :\

I Have a best friend Named ayla. I met her in second grade And she is my first real friend. I found her staring At me and following me everytime, But at recess I found out that she does that Cause she wants To have a friend and she follows me cause she knows That the bully follows me, so she protects me.I dont know why But People see’s ayla in a different way, People dont get why i play with her cause they say ayla is a weirdo. Well Im also a weirdo Myself so i ignore them. One day we had a test and ayla got the highest score. Than at 3rd grade a new kid Become “ Best friends” with ayla. I was not sad im happy cause she had a friend But... The new kid just wants ayla cause she’s smart, she wants good scores. She never lets me play with ayla since then 😭 So Now ayla felt betrayed And she ran to me And hug me and she say Shes thankfull to have me 💞 She Is Like a sister to me ♥︎♥︎♥︎

I have a friend who was my best buddy but sadly she doesn’t sit beside me because our class changed sits and now she doesn’t talk to me that much. I thought 💭 that she was a true friend but she wasn’t. she doesn’t come talk to me she talks to another girl and now that girl is her best friend. Fatema (my best friend)and I are friends 👭 for 3 years She’s my best friend now❤️ and her friend is also my best friend I love them 😍 a lot at least they’re not fake🤗

I have an older Brother with autism too but it’s just mild autism. Even though he has a little trouble communicating, he has a superior memory in which he can remember things from so Long ago. He is also very patient and kind. He only gets mad when provoked and he is always diligent during class and in his homework. Personally after spending my whole life with him, I feel that all an autistic kid needs is to be understood and supported. :D

The saddest thing is that the fact that people use *autism* as an insult....

My brother has autism and I don’t tear up at many things but this was so good I nearly did! I can’t begin to imagine how hard it must be to be so misunderstood, especially if you didn’t have the loving core that my brother has had. Great film, encapsulates autism perfectly.

Well, I may not have autism, but I'm an introvert. So I kinda relate to this kid.
Latvia Ball
He isnt autistic fully he probably has aspergers syndrome which i also have and from my experience i can tell that ive always been afraid of the ball and cant catch it properly and so as that boy i drew doodles in class instead of learning and was good at maths \nAlso most people with aspergers syndrome have obessive addiction to something like in this case spiders my case is drawing or war games \nI can relate like 100%
Lou Voltolina
That is touching I have a friend name Ryan and he has down syndrome. He got bullied and I stopped it .
Madison Hardin
This boy is so careful for him. I have an autistic friend his name is taylor. He is about 21 and he helps our football team. He brings joy to my heart, he is the sweet kid anyone could ever imagine. He has a sickness right now but he's getting better.
Marissa Nortado
most people who got this disorder are intelligent ..when anyone treat them good they will be very calm..but if others bully them thats the time they will become wild..they actually needs attentions

Pawtism
This is beautiful. Autism effects my life too. My son is 6, autistic, and awesome. I often worry kids will someday bully him for being different. It breaks my heart for he is truly the kindest soul I have ever met. He does have a great and outgoing personality so maybe he will not get bullied....I hope. Good on you all who are kind.
Potato e
I also have an autistic friend! I have been her buddy for 3 years now. She is very very smart. But at times she just goes crazy, she would scream and shout running along the corridors . She liked to hug and hold my hand. Actually even though people like Tam are different, there are still human. Treat them like how you want to be treated.

This is so heart warming and makes me feel so good that there are people like him

My son is 8 years old, an autistic kid with ADHD. I'm glad that I came across this video by accident and gotta tell you that this video is so brilliant! As a single parent myself, honestly everyday is different, challenging and unpredictable. Sometimes i feel like i'm in a war with myself, sometimes idk how to handle him, sometimes i'm so lost.. but then again I've learned so much from my son since day 1. And he is the reason why I feel strong. He still has a lot of difficulty to adjust to his morning school, bcoz like this video.. Even some teacher don't really 'understand' about his condition and they expect him to be like other kids but yeah.. It's hard to educate people, even to ask for their empathy and understanding. Its okay. My only hope is for me to give him the best i can.. Thanks again for such an inspiring and beautiful story. Love from Malaysia ❤❤
the gaming boy
i also have ausistic and i'm a very shy person and smart at most subjects and i am also like Tam i get bullied and i didn't have much friends until a mounth ago or let's say three i met some people and we suddenly became friends and when i did get bullied i have been bulling other's beacuse of i got bullied i know your gonna hate me and i just try and block it out of my head and like tam when he could not do that sum i just block it out of my head and yes i get a bit upset if i can not do a question but i do have the best friends i could ever have and my teachers so lot's of support for people like Tam and i but tho's friends have been real friends to me
