Tree (A Paraplegic's Heroic Story)

Honorable Mention -Columbus IFV Festival
"Highly Recommended. Featuring the poems of famous poets, such as Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson, this program draws its inspiration from the beauty of nature, poetry and a man's will to overcome his everyday struggles." -National Media Review
Michael Augspurger, founder of One-Off Titanium, Inc., was inspired by Bob Hall, the first person to enter the Boston Marathon in a wheelchair, to invent the first all-terrain handcycle designed for wheelchair athletes. He then collaborated with award-winning filmmaker Harvey Edwards to tell this true and uplifting story of a strong-willed paraplegic who returns home after rehab and tries to come to terms with life. The hope behind the production is to inspire other paraplegics. Here we see, to soften his shock, he reads poetry about trees, reflecting on what he was and is now; eventually he is motivated to ride outside on a special off-road handcycle and to take photos of nature. In the end a love of poetry and nature, along with his powerful will, help him become a more perceptive and productive human being. Produced by Edwards Films, Inc. 06/10DE JSCA 25 min.
