‘When I Walk,’

This is a documentary about a young man's life with PPMS. The NY Times had very nice things to say about it.

There is a limited schedule of screenings. I hope it's available on dvd or via netflix soon.

I had been watching this young man on YouTube. Thanks for the link I will look into it. It would be great if it came out on DVD. Fingers crossed.

Thanks.....Karry.

This film was recognized at the Vancouver international Film Festival.

"Another hometown nod went to New York-based Emily Carr University grad Jason da Silva for When I Walk, his chronicle of his own battle with multiple sclerosis, named most popular Canadian documentary." - as printed in The Province daily.

Jason and his supporters funded this through a crowdsource site and I can proudly say I was a contributor.  The film is wonderful - he avoids the sob story and tells a truly touching, sincere and even sometimes funny story, about his MS discovery, his mother's determination and his wife's blind love.  If you would be interested in hosting a showing in your home town, you can set it up, risk free to you, through http://www.tugg.com/titles/when-i-walk

It is also set to show at these locations coming up soon....

From what I understand - you sign up at Tugg that you would like to host a showing of When I Walk.  They do all of the logistics in finding a theater in your area, and setting the ticket price.  They also tell you the minimum number of tixs that need to be sold for the movie to be shown..You then recruit your friends, family and strangers to come and see the movie.  They buy their tickets on line.  A very small portion of the ticket prices come back to you for use with a charity -

At least that is how I understand this.
