photo Living with Spinal Cord Injury Series
By Barry Corbet

Changes is about coming to terms with a spinal cord injury: how it happens, what its consequences are, and the process of rehabilitation. The film's images of life, death and hardship are transformed into a resounding declaration of the philosophy of rehabilitation: that lives can be healed even if, sometimes, the body cannot.

The producer, himself injured in a helicopter crash, brings a unique perspective to this award-winning series. All three films speak eloquently to people with disabilities, to their families and friends, and to healthcare and social service professionals working in rehabilitation.
