An artist talk by filmmaker / media artist / activist Jason DaSilva. Mr. Da Silva is the director of the award-winning film When I Walk (2013), which played at VIFF two years ago.
Using the chronology of the past ten years, DaSilva explains how his work shifted thematically after he was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis at the age of twenty-five. By examining his video pieces, he analyzes the relationship between disability and identity through the lens of his personal perspective and art. DaSilva will show excerpts of his past work, and a preview of AXS map project happening in Vancouver this Saturday.
AXS Lab is a non profit organization dedicated to telling the stories of people with disabilities of all kinds through media and technology.
