Braindamadj'd Take II
Case Study in RecoveryStreaming Video - 2008
Comatose after a car accident, Paul Nadler defied medical prognoses that he would never walk or talk again. This award-winning program illustrates his recovery from severe brain trauma and his return to a highly physical and creative lifestyle. Using the innovative visual approach Nadler developed as a television director, the film allows the artist to explain his frustrations and goals in his own unique manner while interweaving the commentary of friends, family, neurologists, and therapists. Nadler's ongoing difficulties with concentration, short-term memory, impulse control, and slurred speech are contrasted with his dogged insistence on snowboarding, rock climbing, video production, and stage acting. Contains harsh language.
