A mother, an optician, and a cartoonist each navigate their lives with determination in the face of Parkinson’s disease.

Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS, and Fayetteville Public Library will host a screening of Matter of Mind: My Parkinson’s. From award-winning co-directors Anna Moot-Levin and Laura Green, the intimate documentary follows three individuals as they manage symptoms and treatments, along the way to living fulfilling lives. Each is a tale of determination where, through ingenuity and adaptation, they offer insight into what it means to live with a degenerative illness.

Trainers and boxers from Rock Steady Boxing NWA will speak with the audience after the film. Rock Steady offers boxing classes for patients with all levels of Parkinson's Disease as a way for them to enhance their daily quality of life by increasing power, strength, flexibility, and speed in movement. The boxing exercises work by moving the body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as the patient progresses through the workout.
