A filmmaker is an educator…

“A filmmaker is an educator. And a good film make can take people where they have never been”.

2014-09-22 21.01.13I captured this quote from an audience member at a film screening that I just attended for Dr. Giuliana Cucinelli’s digital media class. The quote provides an à-propos description of my experience of viewing a documentary called, “When I Walk” by Jason DaSilva.

Whether your interest be in storytelling, cinematography, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, multiple sclerosis or just a love for all documentaries, this film is definitely worthwhile.

Featured on PBS, Oprah, the Meredith Viera Show and the U.S. Netflix site, the production chronicles the onset and evolution of multiple sclerosis in a 25-year old New York City film student with connections to Canada. The trailer can be viewed here. http://www.pbs.org/pov/wheniwalk/
