Jason DaSilva was 25 when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. As a filmmaker, he eventually decided to try and make sense of the disease through his art form. So, he set out to capture what he calls the transformative experience of becoming disabled. DaSilva let the camera run as he dealt with his loss of vision, muscle control, and many other complications. Next week, we’re screening When I Walk as part of the Through the Lens documentary series. Wednesday, DaSilva joins us to talk about it.
On Wednesday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m., RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a screening of When I Walk at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It's part of our Through the Lens documentary series, and Jason DaSilva will join us for a Q&A immediately following the film. Before the film, he'll also be honored with the Film Center's 2014 Peek Award for Disability in Film. The screening is free, but tickets are available on a first come basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For all the details, click here
