Wheelchair Diaries


The film introduces viewers to three Europeans with disabilities. Gavin is a 39-year-old Dubliner whose perspective on disability and accessibility changed when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 15 years ago. Matthieu is a 23-year-old law student at Sorbonne University in Paris who has been confined to a wheelchair his entire life because of spinal muscular atrophy and wants to practice law in the U.S. because of its superior accessibility. Francois is a 33-year-old journalist with cerebral palsy who has a radio broadcasts about handicapped topics and advocates for disability rights in his native-city of Brussels. These people provide the anecdotes that put disability in a light that is rarely shone in the media and shows the undeniable connection between disability and the human condition.
