Eva-Maria

CTC

Synopsis

Eva-Maria is a secretary in her early thirties. She wants to have a child. She’s also been a wheelchair user since early childhood as a result of spastic cerebral palsy. 

Becoming a parent with significant and complex disabilities is a difficult journey. Eva-Maria doesn’t immediately have support from those around her, and the particulars of her body present new medical challenges. However, she is her own best advocate for the right to self-determination. Guided by optimism, hope, and a playful sense of curiosity, Eva-Maria begins the process of in vitro fertilization.

The film’s director and cinematographer, Lukas Ladner, is Eva Maria’s long-term support worker. The closeness and trust between them results in a film with extraordinary access and tenderness -- a warm, frank, and intimate portrayal of what is possible when a person living with a disability is given the resources to design their own support system.
