Watch I AM BREATHING online

On the occasion of today's screenings at Parliament in Westminster and at the Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival, we're proud to announce that I AM BREATHING will be available to everyone from now on.

You can watch the film as video-on-demand in our player below, anywhere in the world. Click the green arrow to access the streaming rental. You'll see a choice of

  • the English version without subtitles,
  • a version with full English subtitles for those who may struggle with Neil's Yorkshire mumbling, and
  • a package of versions with subtitles in other languages.

We'll add subtitles in more languages as we go along, just click on the icon to see which ones are currently included.

You can watch the film right away and resume viewing up to five times over a 30-day period.

This player will also allow you to top up the rental with an optional donation to the I AM BREATHING campaign and the MND Association. (We've also made a video that explains why funds are much needed.)

Any other questions? Just post a comment on this page.

The sliding-scale donation top-up is the next stage of the Portable Fundraiser, a toolset being developed by Scottish Documentary Institute and Distrify, funded through Nesta R&D Scotland.

What an inspirational man you were Neil. It was a privilege to be allowed to watch you cope with your terrible illness with such bravery and fortitude. much love to your family and friends.

OK the £1 minimum has been removed in order to make the top-up donation truly “optional”. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We’re experiencing a technical hiccup with the top-up donation set at a £1 minimum rather than the £0 it should be for it to be truly “optional”. We’ll let you know when this is fixed but we really hope you’ll choose a higher amount anyway…
