Aphasia the Movie

Aphasia the movie is playing at the Other Film Festival this coming Friday and IJS will attend. I briefly caught the end of this film and a fantastic forum with Carl, the films subject; and an audience of stroke survivors with aphasia, and clinicians at the Stroke Society Australasia in Sydney last month. 

In 2005 Carl McIntyre suffered a stroke resulting in aphasia - his journey is the subject of this film.

IJS will speak to Carl on Thursday morning before the screening and hopefully bring back a great video and sound recording capturing some of Carl's story and why the film was made.
