This is cool. Like really, really cool. Not only do we have a film that gives a realistic look at celiac (coeliac) disease, but it’s done in a creative, artistic way. The name of the film is Glutened and it is described by Hayley Repton (the creator) as “a rhythmic short film which expresses the impact everyday life has on a newly diagnosed coeliac, and how she discovers her own tempo.”
Before I delve any further, take an 8 minute break from your busy day and give it a watch. I strongly recommend you put Closed Captioning on or you’ll miss a lot of the subtleties.
I was gonna give this the old Gluten Dude Breakdown where I dissect the film and give my play-by-play commentary. But for this one, I think I’ll shut my mouth (you’re welcome) and let you provide the commentary.
So…what are your thoughts? Did you like? Can you relate?
(P.S. I think we can all relate to what happens at the 7:00 mark).
