Intro to our latest documentary. Suck It Up Princess has recently won a "Special Jury Award" at the Worldfest Houston Awards, was nominated for "Best POV Documentary" at the 2010 Yorkton Film Festival and was shortlisted for "Best International Documentary" at the 2010 International Youth Film Festival in the U.K.
This film is a powerful exploration of courage and strength. A musically enhanced one hour view into the world of Renee Rodrigues, a young website designer, moderator, reporter, charity organizer and victim of congenital muscular dystrophy. Renee has a 500lb wheel chair, a tracheotomy and feels constant pain but that doesn’t stop her for a second. She is very popular and has a thriving on-line life with friends like Shawn Desman, Danny Fernandes and Hilary Duff. Renee makes the most of every second, loves life and is an inspiration to us all.
