After a full weekend of fascinating films we are happy to be screening one of the best received Scottish films of the year. At 6:15 we will be showing "I Am Breathing" which was produced by the Scottish Documentary Institute and recently nominated for The Scottish BAFTA Audience Award. The film is a powerful testament of the human condition as it follows Neil Platt, who over the course of single year goes from being a healthy 30 something to being paralysed from the neck down. Having been diagnosed with what is know as ALS, MND or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. As his body gets weaker, his perspective on life changes. His humour remains, but a new wisdom emerges: “It’s amazing how adaptable we are when we have to be. It’s what separates us and defines us as human beings.”
Through his determination to share his final journey, he makes us ask ourselves ques- tions about our own lives, our relation to- or denial of- our own mortality...

This screening is sponsored by The Drouth and the screening will be followed by Q & A with directors Emma Davie and Morag McKinnon, and Bryan Carroll from MND Scotland.
