Autistic savant Stephen Wiltshire has the ability to sketch huge urban landscapes from memory in near photographic detail. This documentary tells the story of the boy who stunned the world with his first picture of Salisbury Cathedral at the age of eight, and who has developed into a successful young artist. Stephen has drawn many of the world's greatest cities such as Rome, New York and Hong Kong; yet he has never drawn his home town. Spending 15 minutes taking in the London skyline from a helicopter, Stephen will then be provided with a 360-degree, 20 meter wide canvas and a box of pens and pencils to sketch the view from memory, street-by-street and building for building

The Einstein effect savants and creativity ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mute until the age of nine, Stephen Wiltshire learned to communicate through realistic, richly detailed drawings. Alonzo Clemens sculpts clay animal figures with great precision, even though he can barely form a sentence. Matt Savage faced extraordinary developmental problems as a child but has become a teen prodigy among jazz musicians. What is the relationship between creativity and autistic behavior? Why does slow learning, such as the young Albert Einstein experienced, sometimes conceal genius? This program focuses on these questions and other aspects of autistic brain research, revealing fascinating links between the realms of savants and prodigies
