Under the Lights


Sam is a boy with epilepsy so desperate to feel like a normal kid, he goes to prom knowing that the lights will make him have a seizure.

Made by epileptic filmmaker Miles Levin, this film serves to be one of the first authentic, empathetic depictions of epilepsy in cinema: an effort to represent an invisible demographic of 1 in 26 people who suffer from brutal stigma every day.
