I'll Find a Way

Synopsis

This Oscar winner from Beverly Shaffer opens by exposing some of the working practices of the documentary filmmaking and swiftly turns into a lovingly wrought portrait of a nine-year-old girl, Nadia, who has spina bifida, a condition that has left her with no sensation from the knees down. As a small child, Nadia was required to walk using a walking frame, which she teasingly refers to as ‘the robot’ when looking at the family photo album.This film has a wistful quality, which soars with spirit of its leading lady-frank,full of vitality and wit. Over twenty years on,this film still has universal resonance, speaking to people of all ages.
