About I Am Breathing

Within one year, Neil Platt goes from being a regular, funny, 30-something British bloke to becoming someone much more extraordinary. Completely paralyzed from the neck down, he is forced to ask questions most of us never have to face. Neil puts together a letter and memory box for his baby son Oscar and communicates his experience and thoughts about life in a blog - and in this film, which he was determined to make. I AM BREATHING reminds us what it is to be alive, or as Neil, with his unique sense of humor and humility put it, "a tale of fun and laughs with a smattering of upset and devastation."

"Touching, humbling, and inspirational."

"Like a tactical nuclear strike on my soul."
London City Lights

"Among the year's most moving films."
Hollywood Reporter
