WHEN WE WALK
Jason DaSilva / United States / 2019 / 78 ' / English
Following up from his Emmy award-winning film When I Walk, filmmaker Jason DaSilva continues his exploration of living with a severe form of multiple sclerosis for over 10 years. Realizing how many places he is unable to experience with his son as a wheelchair user, he works on a nonprofit AXS Map to help him determine the places he could go. WHEN WE WALK documents a devoted father and filmmaker with an indestructible drive to keep the cameras rolling no matter what and to show his son what it means to never give up.
