Hey Friends,

Sorry for this semi-personal note, hope all is going well! I'm just getting the word out about my new feature film, WHEN I WALK, opening in theaters this Friday in NYC and next week in LA.

It's a film about my journey over the past seven years with multiple sclerosis, looking at the trials and challenges, and finding the triumphs in this. It's a HUGE weekend for me, and hope you can be a part of it!

If you have any friends in these cities, feel free to pass this along. Here's the info:

Sundance-nominated WHEN I WALK, Winner of the Best Canadian Documentary at 2013 Hot Docs and the Audience Award at the 2013 Vancouver International Film Festival. Releases in NYC October 25th. During the opening weekend there will be a Q&A with Alice and I, as with many other special guests.

Opening weekend can make or break the life of an independent film, so please come out and support this award-winning, seven year, labor of love!

“Absorbing and moving!” – Village Voice

“Best Doc at Sundance!” – Hollywood Chicago

“A lovely, inspiring film. DaSilva’s strength and resilience shines through every frame of his story” –Movie City News

Update #8

Welcome to the new and final campaign for When I Walk

Comment

Dear all will helped with When I Walk

Thank you for your contribution to the production of my documentary When I Walk - appreciate your support. When I Walk had an amazing reception at the Sundance Film Festival – every screening was sold out with standing ovations, and it received lots of great reviews from film critics. The film tells the story of life with multiple sclerosis and disability, but has universal truths of triumph over tragedy – a human experience we all can relate to.
Now begins my dream. I want the film to be available in theaters so that so many can experience the film as it was meant to be on the big screen. Doing so is expensive, so I humbly ask for your support once again in making this happen. I started a final Kickstarter campaign

Please copy and paste this link into a new browser:

I ask for your donation – if everyone could just put in $10 – we’d almost reach our goal. Also, as you know from the previous campaign, there are lots of really great rewards!

Help me tell my story which is the story of so many people - a life full of challenges and struggles - but life nonetheless!

Thank you,

Jason

PS Pass it on!
