ASIA A
Andrew Reid
The idea for this film spawned eight years ago when I was paralyzed from the chest down. A malformation of my blood vessels (AVM) resulted in a rupture, which compressed my spine while I was sleeping, leaving me completely paralyzed. Doctors told me I would never walk again but with dedication I regained movement. Today, I walk with a cane and continue to progress in strength and health.
My personal background is what inspired me to make ASIA A. As I spent many months in a hospital room focusing on my recovery, I was introduced to unique individuals of all ages who had been forced to endure life altering injuries that left them disabled. It was their stories that inspired my recovery and ASIA A.
