ROLL WITH ME
DIRECTED BY LISA FRANCE
Set amidst 3,100 miles of open road and small towns, ROLL WITH ME chronicles recovering addict and paraplegic Gabriel Cordell’s momentous journey to become the first person to roll an unmodified wheelchair across America. Directed by Lisa France, the documentary bands together a crew of unlikely co-conspirators, each battling their own issues. Meaningful and motivating, ROLL WITH ME shares intimate narratives of PTSD, homelessness, unemployment, family estrangement and sobriety struggles. The film begins as a challenge to push an unmodified wheelchair from California to Cordell’s hometown of West Hempstead, New York, but along the way Cordell’s exploration of endurance establish ties that speak to our common humanity. ROLL WITH ME is a 2018 Slamdance Official selection.
