Filmmaker Jason DaSilva is a guest of two series: Art Studio Visiting Artist, and Functional Diversity and Art. He will present and discuss When I Walk, in which he documents the first six years of his life after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. “My diagnosis was not the end of the world,” DaSilva has said. “Instead, and with a bit of determination, it has proven to be a new way for me to see and be in the world. This was the voice and heart that emerged in the film, almost more through its own will than mine. As director, my role was to foster that spirit, to learn to adapt and enjoy the ride.”
