Last night I was at The Spiral Movement Center where the first Bodymind Film Festival took place. A documentary starring me was screened. “Jordyn’s Rocky Journey” is a nice film that captures me beautifully.
Boarding it were a film on a boy named Aidan who has cerebral palsy and one that shares Andrew’s and Michelle’s bodymind experiences. My calm body was able to be during Aidan’s and my films and round table questions, but I could no longer control it when my piece was over. I had to burn off steam in the hallway and stairwell.
Andrew’s film I will watch at home.
All were so absolutely awe inspiring.
My film really creates a beautiful picture of both my daily battles with my uncontrollable body (Rocky) and my inner self (Jordyn). Stephanie and Yuji kept both distinct and that helps others to see the disconnect between me and my body.
Although I am gaining more control each day, this film is important for people like me to gain understanding from teachers, therapists and family so that they too can begin to bring their mind and body together.
I request that you share this film (“Jordyn’s Rocky Journey”) far and wide so it can lead people to all the support I offer.
