A moving documentary

Friends, here is a amazing documentary made by a sister of a PWS brother. More:
“STAMMERS tells the story of Jef, an 18-year old with autism spectrum disorder, who struggles with severe stammering. Together with his parents Jef made several unsuccessful attempts to overcome his speech problems. Now, years later, he decided to fight his stammering for the very last time.”

A journalist wrote after the premier:
“… Passion is the first word that comes to mind watching STAMMERS, the heart-warming portrait Joke Nyssen made – with the patience of a saint – of her brother Jef, an ostensibly incurable stutterer who, with great difficulty and equal determination, gradually learns to gain control and win himself a place in society… Two years of shooting and 150 hours of footage have been distilled into a document brimming with affection, as pure and tender as the portrait French actress Sandrine Bonnaire made of her sister in ‘On m’appelle Sabine’.” – Freddy Sartor in Filmmagie
