KUCI: Get the Funk Out
In 1999 Aaron Baker broke his neck in a motocross accident, leaving him completely paralyzed from the neck down. Despite doctor's grim prognosis, over the next 16 years Aaron decided not to listen to those who said 'he had a million-to-one odds of ever feeding himself again' and instead, through painstaking effort, endeavored to regain as much mobility as possible. This journey through the unknown took him from the depths of depression to the joys of cross country road tripping via tandem bicycle with his mother and friends, and finally, culminating in his opening a socially conscious low-cost gym focused on increasing mobility for the disabled. Now, in COMING TO MY SENSES, we watch as Aaron takes one final journey which symbolizes his recovery: crossing a 20-mile tract of Death Valley unsupported on foot. But will he make it? COMING TO MY SENSES will be available on EST platforms May 15, with VOD on May 22 . The feature length documentary won the Audience award at the Austin Film Festival and Best Documentary at Red Rock Film Festival, has played at the Miami Film Festival, Mammoth Film Festival, and will screen at the Newport Beach Film Festival later this month. Directed by Dominic Gill and produced by Nadia Gill, editing is by Dominic Gill and Nick Andert. Julian Cautherley executive produces and original music is by Cody Westheimer. COMING TO MY SENSES is distributed by The Orchard. For more information on the film visit http://www.tomysenses.com/
