Thank you for posting this, but one wonders why your post landed in the CCSVI topic. Perhaps it would reach a broader audience if it were placed elsewhere. Else, I misunderstand how it relates to CCSVI.

Jason and Alice became good friends and familiar to many of us when they looked into CCSVI. He includes this part of his journey in his film, which he showed at Dr. Sclafani's CCSVI conference a couple years back... and my husband Jeff wrote the musical score and was at Sundance with Jason last January.
Guess that's why Cece posted it here (thanks, Cece!)

now showing in NYC, soon in other locations.

Maybe it should be posted in the main forum also? The film is devastatingly well done. I first saw it at the Brooklyn CCSVI symposium put on by Dr. Sclafani a few years ago.
Jason tried CCSVI treatment but it didn't stop his fast progression.

I look forward to a chance to view this film. I first became familiar with Jason DaSilva from his work with the NMSS in reporting from ECTRIMS.

There are dozens of forums at thisIsMS that cover various topics. I think it is useful to put new posts into a forum that is appropriate for the topic to reach the correct audience.

I imagine there are many people who do not watch new posts in the CCSVI forum because they don't have an interest or don't consider the topic relevant. So, as I didn't see anything related to CCSVI in the post, and as I don't have any knowledge of a connection between Mr. DaSilva and CCSVI, I raised this point.

I watch for new posts to all forums by selecting the Return to Index Page at the logon page, and then selecting the View New Posts link, but I imagine that many people only look for new posts in the forums they follow.

I think one of the many strengths of thisIsMS is the ability to focus in on only certain topics.
