About the film: About 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), a debilitating autoimmune illness that renders some paralyzed. As filmmakers, we pluck stories from our life experience, and from my first days in the Intensive Care Unit at NYU Hospital I began to conceive of ways to tell this one in particular. “What Doesn’t Kill You” serves as my graduate thesis film at Columbia University.
Current Status: Crowdfunding until Dec. 18, Post-production + Feature Film Development.
