Jason DaSilva was 25 years old and a rising independent filmmaker when a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis changed everything -- and inspired him to make another film. "When I Walk" is a candid and brave chronicle of his struggle to adapt to the harsh realities of MS while holding on to his personal and creative life. While his body grew weaker, DaSilva's spirits, and his film, were buoyed by his mother's tough love and the support of Alice Cook, who became his wife and filmmaking partner. This life-affirming documentary is filled with unexpected moments of joy and humor. Shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). Watch the trailer at dbrl.org/films. Adults and teens.
