Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of twenty-five, Jason DaSilva responded by turning to one of the few unchanged aspects of his life – his interest in filmmaking. He documented everything, from his struggles adjusting to the impact of MS after being able-bodied all his life, to meeting Alice Cook, his then future wife, at an MS support group. Cook eventually joined him in the creation of the documentary. Their film, “When I Walk,” aired on PBS June 23, 2014, and was a selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Watch the trailer below, or view the entire film online, courtesy of PBS. The film will only be available online for one month, from June 24th to July 23rd, so check it out soon!
