A lack of information and public awareness motivated the filmmaker to explore the topic of Traumatic Brain Injury.
The documentary OVERCOMING sheds light on how everyone copes with the various consequences of Traumatic Brain Injury in ways that differ for each individual.
The intention of the documentary is to raise awareness of Traumatic Brain Injury, and to provide information on it.
Because the goal of the documentary is to raise awareness about Traumatic Brain Injury and to provide more information about its consequences it is best if it's seen by TBI patients in hospitals to give them hope that the recovery is possible.
Also, medical and law students at Universities in order for them to get a greater insight into the topic.
It can be arrainged for the documentary “Overcoming" to be seen one time by medical staff at hospitals, students/professors at Universities.
Or the documentary “Overcoming" can be seen on a regular basis by TBI patients, medical staff at hospitals, in classes at Universities for students.
I want the message of hope that the documentary has, to be delivered to as many TBI patients and medical students, staff as possible.
The director/producer Katerina Dejkoska would like to express her gratitude to Dr. Arciniegas and Dr. Giacino for their medical consultation they provided during filming the documentary.
Also, the director/producer Katerina Dejkoska would like to thank the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts for providing participants for the documentary, and the TBI survivors for their continued support.
The documentary was shown at: International Brain Injury Association Congress in March 2017 in New Orleans, Harvard University, Emerson College, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, Sargent College - Boston University.
