ABOUT THE FILM

What does a handsome, charming, globe-trotting, award-winning young filmmaker do when he is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis? He makes a film about it, if he’s brave. With typical wry humour, director Jason DaSilva says, “Documentarians often want to build trust and acceptance with their subjects. Being that I was the subject of my own film, and that I didn’t yet have that acceptance of myself, the filmmaking was arduous at first.” Jason’s brilliantly constructed account is funny, poignant, hopeful and enlightening. He inspires us to find, as he has, “a new way to see and be in the world”.
