Have you seen this film?
Twisted is a film by Laurel Chiten, produced by Blind Dog Films . This story is about people living with the neurological disorder, dystonia. The experience of being trapped inside your body and thinking about what will set you free is told in the words of people living with cervical dystonia (CD) and one woman, a radio presenter, living and working with spasmodic dysphonia (SD), a form of dystonia affecting vocal cords. Laurel Chiten, the filmmaker also tells a little about her own experiences of living with CD.
A film review by The Santa Fe New Mexican on the back of the DVD cover says, “… Twisted is a success. Not only because of the filmmakers personal connection to the topic but because of the film’s fascinating and complex cast of characters. Its funky enough to be an art-house flick and brimming with larger themes about how people set themselves free. Part joy, part despair, TWISTED also explores the wonders and limitations of medical breakthroughs.”
