I am making a film with Ruairi Corr. He was diagnosed at six with a degenerative genetic disorder, Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), a disease linked to the X chromosome. ALD results from a buildup of fatty acid due to the relevant enzymes not functioning properly. Ruairi lives a life that is structured around medical waiting. He is dependent on a wide range of care givers, and the support of his close family and their friends. Within this structure, he lives a full and busy life. Rather than being the passive subject of a documentary, he is participating as a collaborating filmmaker and is able to create his own record of his work and activities.
