Exclusive: Two Clips From Autobiographical Documentary 'When I Walk' Chronicle Man's Coping with MS

Ahead of its release later this month, Indiewire has obtained two exclusive new clips from Jason DaSilva’s documentaryWhen I Walk.” The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, captures his life following being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Despite the risk of debilitating side effects like loss of vision and muscle control, DaSilva maintains a positive disposition, turning the camera on himself as he undergoes a journey of self-discovery.

The clips illustrate how DaSilva finds hope and humor in every situation. The first clip features him going on a date to the Guggenheim with a girl named Alice, who offers to also use a scooter to see what it’s like from his point-of-view. The second also features Alice, as she and DaSilva go about creating a map of businesses whose locations are accessible to the physically disabled.

“When I Walk” opens in New York City on October 25.
