    Film

    The Dani’s Twins documentary provides a rare, intimate look into the topics of disability, pregnancy and adaptive parenthood, viewed through the lens of one woman’s personal journey. The 40-minute documentary film captures the pregnancy and early parenting journey of Dani Izzie, one of the few quadriplegics in history to ever give birth to twins. Dani’s pregnancy is highly unusual and susceptible to an array of risks, from stroke to early labor. When Covid strikes, it raises the stakes for an already complicated pregnancy and, with the filmmakers physically distanced, puts the documentary at risk. Incredibly, Dani works with the team to capture her own story, despite her limited dexterity and the strains of pregnancy. Amid these ups and downs, Dani’s story depicts her unwavering determination against all odds to deliver healthy babies and be a great mother.


    “Beautiful, powerful and demonstrates how strength and belief in oneself can combat discrimination.”  – Judith Heumann, Disability Rights Activist

    “A glimpse into a world of motherhood that most people think impossible.” – Angela Rockwood, Producer “Push Girls”

    “A beautiful exploration of the joys of interdependence.” – Nina Tame, Disability Advocate
