EMMY®-WINNING DIRECTOR JASON DASILVA’S ‘WHEN WE WALK’ IS A SURPRISING AND IMPACTFUL FOLLOW-UP TO HIS AWARD WINNING 2013 DOCUMENTARY ‘WHEN I WALK’

Jason Dasilva

Filmmaker Jason DaSilva has been living with a severe form of multiple sclerosis for over 10 years. In his wheelchair, Jason begins to realize just how many places he is unable to experience with his son. To solve that, he continued working on the website axsmap to help him determine the places he could go. When his son moves 1700 miles away to Austin, Texas he is unable to cope with this loss. He attempts to relocate to Austin which reveals to him the extent of the broken Medicaid system. He discovers that state-run Medicaid would require him to live in a nursing home. 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.

The film screenings on June 14 & 18, respectively. Get your tickets at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival Film Page.
