Jonathan Sigworth, a former Wesleyan student and now a junior at Dartmouth College, fell from a 70 ft. cliff in northern India in 2006 and became a quadriplegic. Three years later, to encourage his Indian peers, Jonathan made this short film telling his story and the stories of four of his quadriplegic friends. More than Walking is a film about tragedies and opportunities, wheelchair rugby and new beginnings; it shows that out of the nightmare of an accident can come a gift of life.
Come hear Jonathan speak about his family’s current efforts towards spinal cord injury awareness in India and view his 20 minute documentary “More Than Walking” (Best Undergraduate Documentary, Ivy Film Festival, 2010)
Refreshments will be served.
