CASTING NOTICE – WHEELCHAIR USERS IN CENTRAL FL
Walking Dreams – A Documentary
The vast majority of full-time wheelchair users – even those who have been disabled since birth – frequently dream that they can walk, run, play sports, and dance. However, no one really knows why because the phenomenon hasn’t been extensively studied. ‘Walking Dreams’ will explore this subject through several interviews with wheelchair users, scientists, and spiritual/religious experts.
