Director Statement

A BATTLING BODY was so important to me, to make a film about a so unknown and still widespread disease. My aunt died from MS 6 years ago after years of fighting it, and i wanted to honor her and help the associations in their missions. So i offered an "advertising version" of "A corps battant" at UNISEP (unisep.org), using their logo and website, to use it in their communications and encourage donations.
