An intimate documentary portrait of a woman with motor neurone disease, as she navigates the ups and downs of family life. Made in close collaboration with the subject, Kathryn Arjomand, the film draws on 930 hours of footage shot from a camera fixed to her wheelchair, capturing her point of view with a fisheye lens that emphasises Kathryn’s limited field of vision as well as the cramped New York apartment in which she lives. Co-directed by Kathryn’s son Noah, Eat Your Catfish is a deeply moving film imbued with moments of humour, capturing life in all of its messy detail. There will be a panel discussion following the film screening on 10 November.

Screening as part of Disability Futures, presented by LIFF 2022 and the University of Leeds, and funded by the Wellcome Trust. Disability Futures is also presented in partnership with injury and litigation specialist law firm Stewarts.
