Best Art/Animation Film shortlist at Portobello Film Festival 2015

Director: Vesna Marich
Produced: Joy of Sound (JOS)

Although having a severe cerebral palsy and being a wheelchair user, Hannah James lives a very busy life. Her drive, energy, ambition and creativity is the force behind her many activities shown in this film: her job as a disability advisor, workshops she attends, art she produces and trips she undertakes. And this is not where her interests stop.

“I love to dance, really, really love to dance,” says Hannah. The film follows the rehearsals of a dance piece co-devised and produced by Joy of Sound with Hannah – tracking the struggle in finding an achievable ‘right theme and choreography’, and features elements from the final triumphant performance.

Hannah herself narrates the film using her Tellus Mobi 2 communication aid.
