When I Walk
Watch May 16, 9:00pm
In 2006, 25-year-old Vancouver filmmaker Jason DaSilva was on vacation at the beach when, suddenly, he fell down. He couldn’t get back up. His disease - multiple sclerosis, diagnosed just a few months earlier - could no longer be ignored. MS might stop him from walking, but it couldn't stop him from doing what he loved. Jason picked up his camera, turned it on his declining body, and set out on a worldwide journey in search of healing, self-discovery and love. Jason's Emmy-winning documentary is an emotional, life-affirming film driven by his determination to survive - and to make sense of a devastating disease through the art of cinema.
