In 2008, promising young Irish director Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (ALS). At just 34 years old, he was given four years to live. Reeling from the shock, Fitzmaurice realised that his greatest defiance of ALS would be to direct his first feature film. Seven years later, despite total physical incapacitation, Fitzmaurice completed My Name is Emily (2015), directing it only with the use of his eyes. This emotional journey of self-realisation and personal triumph over life-crushing adversity is nothing short of inspiring.
