About the Film

WHEN WE WALK documents a devoted father and filmmaker with an indestructible drive to keep the cameras rolling no matter what and to show his son what it means to never give up.

Filmmaker Jason DaSilva has been living with a severe form of multiple sclerosis for over 10 years. In his wheelchair, Jason begins to realize just how many places he is unable to experience with his son. To solve that, he works on a nonprofit AXS Map to help him determine the places he could go.

When his son moves 1700 miles away to Austin, Texas he is unable to cope with this loss. He attempts to relocate to Austin which reveals to him the extent of the broken Medicaid system, & ultimately discovers that the Medicaid system would require him to live in a nursing home.

Watch a live-streamed discussion with director Jason da Silva and special guests on Facebook.
