Welcome To 'Faith's World'

Faith's World provided.jpg
Faith Guilbault (L) works with her mentor, filmmaker Joyce Chopra, during the filming of the documentary 'Faith's World.' The film provides a window into what life is like for Faith, who has cerebral palsy, and her family.

When was the last time you got to know someone who lives a life entirely different from your own? How did that feel? What did you learn?

The documentary ‘Faith’s World’ opens a window into the life of a teen who defies all sorts of stereotypes about people with disabilities. Faith Guilbault, its director and star, has cerebral palsy. We also talk with her filmmaking mentor in a project called BYKids, Joyce Chopra and with Faith’s mother, Karen:

"I just hope that people can have a better understanding of individuals living with a disability and to be open minded and to be present and ask and speak with and to and at the person.”
