Director Biography - Zoe Lyttle

Director Statement

This is an incredibly personal film, although not just to me. I am type-1 diabetic, but this film is not about me and my experiences. Using the stories of people from different backgrounds and connecting them through this shared experience of being chronically ill and disabled while trying to survive in the United States, I wanted to be able to give an unknowledgeable audience a glimpse into a tiny portion of what living with these hardships can be like. I hope that the viewer can be a little more empathetic to others who must live life differently than them, especially during times like these.
