In April 2020, our director Stephanie was given an Award of Recognition from the Best Shorts Competition in California for her inspiring documentary called Muscle Warriors. In August 2020, the film won the Best Diversity Short award at the MiraBan UK Film Awards. In October 2020, Muscle Warriors became a semi-finalist at the Dumbo Film Festival in New York.
Muscle Warriors follows Ryan O'Leary who suffers with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He expresses that living with a life-limiting condition can effect your mental health, but it is important to try and maintain a positive well-being by doing something you love.
Ryan plays for a powerchair football team called Muscle Warriors PFC and he powerfully illustrates that partaking in sports is a fantastic way to keep a healthy mind, through building confidence, socialising and achieving.
Stephanie's film aims to remove the stigma around disability and show how people with disabilities can lead a positive and successful life.
Muscle Warriors has not yet been released, but like us on social media for updates.
