★2017 日舞影展

愛爾蘭電影導演賽門•費茲墨利斯三十四歲時被宣告患了漸凍人症,就在他的短片作品於日舞影展首映後,而他的妻子正懷著第三胎,她要求賽門為每個孩子寫信以防終日到來。但賽門選擇為生命奮鬥,他寫下了回憶錄,並展開拍攝劇情片的計畫,同時對抗身體機能的每況愈下,五年後他的第一部作品《我的名字叫艾蜜莉》正式上映,並成為五個孩子的父親......
本片旁白由愛爾蘭知名影星柯林法洛根據賽門費茲墨利斯回憶錄敘述。我們從紀錄片中不僅能夠看到一位勇者如何對抗病魔,也看到了一個熱愛電影的人,如何用盡氣力,只為了讓心愛作品問世。

Narrated by Irish actor Colin Farrell, this is the incredible, life-affirming story of award winning director and best selling author Simon Fitzmaurice, a talented young filmmaker who, despite a diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease at the age of 34, goes on to direct his first feature film My Name is Emily (2015) solely through the use of the last physical attribute he has control over - his eyes. The documentary is a celebration of Simon’s love of film, of creating art and of telling beautiful human stories regardless the obstacle.
