Who Am I To Stop It

A STORY OF THREE ARTISTS WITH BRAIN INJURY.

"Who Am I To Stop It" is a documentary on isolation, art, and transformation after brain injury. It is not designed to be inspirational simply because it features traumatic brain injury survivors. Instead, we look at very difficult questions around loneliness, stigma, poverty, and how people find their way in the world again. The film centers on art not as rehabilitation but as a tool for personal growth, meaningful work, and social change. The film will take an intimate look at life and art with brain injury through witnessing the lives of the artists as they create art, interact in their communities in the Pacific Northwest, and go about their daily lives.

This is a creative project of StoryMinders and Eleusis Films. Production on the film began in November 2012. Expected release is early 2016.

The film is a sponsored project of The Hollywood Theatre.
