Event description

Description

“[Storytelling] is poetic world-making.” - Michael Warner

“Running Breathless” is a short film about a young woman living with a chronic illness. The film came as a response to a lack of representation of invisible disabilities on screen. As the filmmaker, Laurel Schwartz, explains: “A chronically ill life comes with health challenges that are neither acute nor fatal and it is a life that deserves a place on screen.” The film is meant to start a conversation about how we as a community might “poetically world-make” such that people living with chronic illnesses not only feel validated, but also have the tools they need to thrive.

Join filmmaker Laurel Schwartz for a screening a Q+A about the film and a discussion about chronic illness. She’ll be joined by Aria Love, a young chronic illness activist and one of the subjects of Laurel’s next film.
