Pas de résumé français disponible

"Since being diagnosed with a severe form of multiple sclerosis more than a decade ago, Jason DaSilva has tenaciously guarded his independence, despite using a wheelchair and requiring around-the-clock support. When his marriage ends and his ex-wife and three-year-old son move to Austin, Texas, new obstacles emerge as he struggles to relocate from New York City and retain the care he deserves. Reflecting his own childhood with divorced parents living in different countries, his determination to be present in his son’s life resonates deeply. DaSilva’s urgency to live life as fully as possible makes this profound follow-up to his award-winning When I Walk (2013) both a heartfelt love letter to his son and an incisive critique of the inequity facing those who live with disability. This uncensored view of his life highlights documentary’s formidable power as a tool of both memory and advocacy."
