Any shows/ Docs/ movies with MS?

Hey guys! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as they can. So I always go on a binge search of any documentaries, movies or shows that deal with MS. I would love some recommendations! Only ones I have seen:

– Living proof (documentary)
– 100 Meters (Netflix movie) so good!

Thank you @stumbler ! I feel like I have heard about this one. Hopefully I can find it.

@jamoranto Haha that’s funny! But yeah it definitely helps if you know Spanish. For me, I didn’t need the captions but at least you can do that.

Yes it’s hit and miss. Definitely need the captions most of the time.

Hi @ rel12

Wow, thanks for the heads up of the film “100 Metres”, I just watched it and it was a great film. One thing I have struggled with is getting my family to understand how my MS affects me and what could potentially happen relapse wise. I will be recommending my family watch this film too.

@rel12 ,

Good luck in tracking this one down!

Saw this on TV back in 2009 when I was going through my own MS diagnoses, watched it as I was a huge fan of his art, and also to gain a window into my possible future. Managed to find a copy on ebay last year, and on rewatching it realised my possible future back then has become my reality, oh well…

While they’re not full length documentary films, Shift.ms have lots of film on their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLm0sRroMtds2fdzQtPqAKSxtodqkMj4lc

“At Shift.ms our mission is to challenge stereotypes. To tell honest, diverse stories that represent the lived realities of MSers, adapting to the uncertainty of a diagnosis with multiple sclerosis.

“The stories aren’t prescriptive and leave intentional room for interpretation. There’s no single experience and there’s no single way of adapting to an MS diagnosis.

“Our stories strive to break the hero narrative, celebrating the everyday, and by encouraging empathy not sympathy, we create content that MSers can relate to.”

A part of a later plot revolving around MS comes up in the series “The West Wing”.

@underdog I am glad that you watched it! I also had my family watch it so they could see what it is like with MS, even though everyone deals with it in a different way. It’s hard to explain clearly what really goes down!

@markp Thank you! But sorry to hear that – hope you are doing well. I have not heard of this but reading a bit and I will try and find this one. I love horror so I think it’s cool he’s a horror artist.

@ray_thomas Haha thank you for sending that!

@sophoeshift Yes, I have seen most of these. They are great and creative!

@andrea_woodvine Thank you!
