Synopsis

Calgary filmmaker Mat Embry may be uniquely qualified to make a documentary about Multiple Sclerosis, having lived with the little-understood disease since his diagnosis in 1995. What he and his scientist father Ashton Embry have discovered about MS in the decades since have put them on the outside of a medical establishment that they believe would rather keep people buying ineffective medication than pursue the most promising but less lucrative avenues of treatment. Marked both by the Embrys’ outrage at this system and their passionate belief that people with MS can live healthier lives without drugs, LIVING PROOF is an inspirational and eye-opening film with a special relevance to so many families in Canada, the country with the highest MS rate in the world.
