Being Human is the UK’s first national festival of the humanities. Between 15 and 23 November 2014, the festival will engage people across the UK with innovative research.
At the National Museum of Scotland there is a day of events with two film screenings documenting an individual's struggle with Motor Neurone Disease and another's experience of a serious illness. In the evening there is panel discussion about how documentary film can give voice to people with serious, often terminal illnesses.

Filmmakers Emma Davie and Amy Hardie join producer Sonja Henrici to discuss the ways documentary film can help people with serious, often terminal illnesses, to find and to articulate their own voices, making those voices heard in new ways.

I Am Breathing will be screened as part of the 5th season of 'Filmosophy'
This season will focus on the theme of 'regeneration' and is offered in association with the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine. The MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine is a world leading research centre studying stem cells, disease and tissue repair to advance human health.
The screening will be followed by a panel event featuring the documentary's producer, Sonja Henrici, and scientists from the CRM who are undertaking ground-breaking research on Motor Neurone Disease.
We will gain a valuable insight into the lives of those touched by the diseases and injuries that regenerative medicine aims to treat, and will address questions regarding the ethics of both stem cell research and documentary film-making.
