Harry Bruell, President and CEO of PathPoint in California, is sponsoring a special free film screening on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at 1:00 pm PDT (4:00 pm EDT) of the award-winning short film “Under the Lights,” the story of a young man with epilepsy.
Under the Lights is the story of Sam, a boy with epilepsy who is so desperate to feel like a normal kid that he goes to prom knowing that the lights will make him have a seizure. Cinema has historically stigmatized and ignored people with epilepsy, a demographic of 1 in 26 who have almost never been represented authentically on screen and suffer from brutal stigma every day. Under the Lights was written and directed by a filmmaker with epilepsy, Miles Levin, and Miles will participate in a Q&A as part of the film screening.
