When I Walk

No ordinary love story.

Published on May 13, 2014


Film maker Jason DaSilva has multiple sclerosis but it's not until he falls over and can't get back up again that the reality of what that means sinks in.

DaSilva does what comes naturally; he picks up the camera and turns it on himself, partly as a form of distraction and also to try to take control of what is happening to him.

A trip to India to find a cure is fruitless but the documentary takes on another dimension when he attends an MS support group. There he meets Alice Cook and falls in love. DaSilva's unbreakable spirit and clever direction makes this no ordinary love story.
