Purple Day — Would You Watch This on Saturday?

A poster poster for the short film “Under the Lights” by Miles Levin. The text reads, “Check out the new award winning short-film, ‘Under the Lights,’ by filmmaker Miles Levin, a person with epilepsy. In the film, a boy with epilepsy is desperate to feel like a regular kid, so he goes to prom despite knowing that the lights will make him have a seizures. The film features an all-star cast including Pearce Joza (Disney and Nickelodeon), Alyssa Jirrels (Disney and Marvel) and Greg Grunberg (Star Wars and Star Trek).

Saturday, March 26 is Purple Day, a worldwide date in which people wear purple and educate others on Epilepsy Awareness. It is also going to be the public premiere of the award-winning film, “Under the Lights.” Miles Levin, its creator, wants to make this short film into a longer, full-feature film — and I agree! — so one way you can help is to watch it on its March 26 release. I’ve seen it, and it’s phenomenal. I don’t remember the exact length, but it’s 10-15 minutes long. Can you join us to watch it? — Any time on Saturday?

The Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is promoting it on Facebook and Instagram.

“Prom season is here! Who wants to go?

Miles Levin has beautifully crafted an award-winning film, “Under the Lights” – A story about Sam, a boy with epilepsy who goes to prom knowing that the lights will make him have a seizure. The film features an all-star cast, including Pearce Joza (Disney and Nickelodeon), Alyssa Jirrels (Disney and Marvel), and Greg Grunberg (Star Wars and Star Trek).
