I’m so happy to have been a part of such a meaningful and poignant film, “Still Sophie” directed by Caroline Knight, which will be making its world premier today in Charlotte as part of the 100 Words Film Festival (a festival where all films must use exactly 100 words! Talk about tricky!)
“Still Sophie” is a seven minute documentary that tells the story of a young woman, Sophie, who suffered a stroke when she was 19. After four years of therapy she’s made amazing progress but still struggles with aphasia, which is where her thinking process is completely intact but speaking those thoughts is extremely difficult.
Singing, however, is easier. Sophie has always loved to sing and that hasn’t changed a bit because of her stroke! In fact, the documentary features Sophie singing “Maybe This Time” and that’s where I come in – I’m accompanying her on piano!
What a strong, determined and beautiful young woman Sophie is! An inspiration!
