Hi My name is Dan Shannon, I am the director of this documentary. Not so long ago my daughter was diagnosed with T1D just before her 16th birthday, and for the next 5 years, I followed her…this is her story.
This is not your typical lab coat medical film: Part road movie, part coming-of-age story, shot in Canada, USA, and Ecuador, it may just change the way you view the issue of diabetes. More importantly, if you know someone dealing with this, you may be in a position to really help them.
I have learned one thing making this film, people with T1D feel isolated and don’t talk easily. We have screened it in festivals, in hospitals and in small group settings the result is always the same: young people feel all of a sudden their reality is vindicated, what they are going though, others are too. It is a great tool for parents with T1D kids, to tackle some tough issues they may be facing with their teens.
Here are a few unsolicited Facebook testimonials:
And a few more…
“Thank you for the courage to tell your story…it was powerful
not only for my type 1 son, but his brother and myself”
– Karen Kouri, after Palm Beach International Film Festival screening
“Wonderful film and I hope that all children who have T1D will get to see. It should be shown at the Children’s hospital as well as the diabetic camps for children with T1D. I was very impressed with the film.”
– Gloria Olson Ross, after Montreal World Film Festival screening
