Thanks for sharing this.
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.
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.
Anyone interested in this it is also on face book to follow.
He is always adding more info about new shows etc..
I look forward to seein this someday!! I would love to go see it but where I live will probably be waiting forever!!
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....

lulu.... how do you mean "host an event"
I am intrigued!!
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.
I don't know if I could get 100+ people to go though..???
