I don’t know if I’m just extra emotional tonight or what, but I cried two times watching this video by director David Barnes. This kid’s honesty and the beautiful filming and editing, ahh it’s too much for me right now. A+

Theo is 10 years old, and almost blind. In this video he explains “what it’s like to be me” as part of an Emmy Award winning collection of short documentary portraits, featuring kids with a variety of medical conditions.
