People like me - Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T) Production

In November 2015 I filmed an activity weekend for the A-T Society (Ataxia Telangiectasia). I had never heard of this condition before. I was approached by the CEO William Davis in 2013, he was interested in presenting thoughts and feeling from those living with the condition, rather than it being a medical perspective. I was obviously intrigued and started looking through whatever information I could find on the web about this condition. 

Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T) is a progressive genetic condition which causes severe disability. The A-T Society works to improve quality of life and care for people living with A-T. 

Three films have been produced two are below:

Winner - Disability Issue Film at the Tagore International Film Festival

The final film People like me
  Young people with Ataxia Telangiectasia, a rare, disabling and life - shortening condition, talk about how they overcome the challenges and live their lives to the full. As the condition affects almost every aspect of their lives, including speech it is hard for them to get their voices heard but here they talk movingly about how they live their lives and what inspires and motivates them. Filmed during an activity weekend in 2015.
