In the course of recording a few interviews with Ruth Merry about her book ‘Enabled‘ which charts some of her wheelchair bound adventures, we came across a very interesting subject – how film is a key therapy in coping with her disability.
Ruth was born with arthrogryposis which effects her movement, especially in her legs. It hasn’t stopped her taking on many things in life that her able bodied friends find amazing. She has represented her country at skiing and swimming and the book Enabled tells the story of her attempt at becoming the first disabled lady to tackle the bobsleigh. In this video Ruth talks about the importance of film. Her book Enabled is available from all good bookstores, online via Amazon and soon on Amazon Kindle and iBooks.
