WINNER OF THE AUDIENCE AWARD, ALBERTA FEATURE

Calgary filmmaker Matt Embry meets fellow sufferers of multiple sclerosis and investigates treatment options in this documentary, which will have its world premiere at TIFF.

LIVING PROOF is a dynamic, fast-paced feature-length documentary that examines the crippling politics of multiple sclerosis. Diagnosed with the disease, filmmaker Matt Embry embarks on a journey to meet top MS experts to find hope for treatment. From Italy to Iowa, he encounters a network of other MS sufferers who ignore neurologists, share their own information and question if Big Pharma, academia, government and multiple sclerosis charities are keeping MS patients from accessing alternative treatments for the sake of profit. 

LIVING PROOF stylistically blends first-person investigative filmmaking, science, and a compelling, heartfelt story of a father and son’s fight to distill the truth and save lives.
