When I Walk: A Multiple Sclerosis Story

I’m fully expecting this film to be excellent, please watch it especially if you or someone you love has MS

Synopsis

Jason DaSilva was 25 years old and a rising independent filmmaker when a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis changed everything — and inspired him to make another film. When I Walk is a candid and brave chronicle of one young man’s struggle to adapt to the harsh realities of M.S. while holding on to his personal and creative life. With his body growing weaker, DaSilva’s spirits, and his film, get a boost from his mother’s tough love and the support of Alice Cook, who becomes his wife and filmmaking partner. The result is a life-affirming documentary filled with unexpected moments of joy and humor. Official Selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. A co-production of ITVS. A co-presentation with the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM).

If you are in NYC, When I walk will be on PBS channel 13 at 10pm tonight. Check your local listings for showings. It was also be available for viewing here.
