AVMs affect less than one
percent of the population but
hundreds of thousands of
people around the world.
These documentaries are some
of the first to give voice to
those affected by the defect
through allowing survivors
to speak for ourselves.
Ryan's Story takes viewers inside a day in the life
of a 14 -year-old boy struggling with one of the
rarest vascular anomalies in the world,
Arteriovenous Malformation, as he faces
self-esteem issues in middle school and reflects
on surviving an aneurysm, hemorrhaging and
over 40 facial procedures.
*Festivals Include: Indie Night Film Festival
(Chinese Theater in Hollywood),
Long Beach Indie International Film Festival (nominated for Best Documentary Short),
Culture Unplugged Film Festival, and Love Your Shorts Film Festival.
