  • Un film de Jason DaSilva

À 25 ans, Jason DaSilva est sur une plage avec sa famille quand il perd soudainement l’usage de ses jambes. Atteint d’une forme grave de sclérose en plaques, Jason se tourne vers ce qu’il aime le plus : l’art et le cinéma. Avec courage et détermination, il filme pendant 7 ans le lent déclin de son propre corps et son combat pour une vie digne et significative. When I Walk est un journal intime ambitieux et émouvant qui a été présenté dans plusieurs festivals avant de nous arriver à Montréal, dont Sundance et le Festival de film de Vancouver (VIFF) où il a reçu le prix du public.

In 2006, 25-year-old Jason DaSilva was on vacation at the beach with family when, suddenly, he fell down. He couldn't get back up. His legs had stopped working; his disease could no longer be ignored. Just a few months earlier doctors had told him that he had multiple sclerosis, which could lead to loss of vision and muscle control, as well as a myriad of other complications. Jason tried exercise to help cope, but the problem only worsened. After his dispiriting fall on the beach, he turned to his Mom, who reminded him that, despite his disease, he was still a fortunate kid who had the opportunity to pursue the things he loved most: art and filmmaking. Jason picked up the camera, turned it on his declining body, and set out on a worldwide journey in search of healing, self-discovery, and love.
