Directing Movies Against All Odds

When Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with ALS, a disease that made him unable to speak or move his body, doctors said he had four years left to live. That was eight years ago. He has since gone on to write a book and make a film, using only his eyes and a computer to create his work and communicate.

This Great Big Story was co-developed with TIFF.
