About the film:
Things not to say to someone with a brain injury aims to raise awareness of common misunderstandings about brain injury. It portrays the frustrations and upset that can be felt by survivors when faced with often well-meaning but ultimately inappropriate comments, such as ‘I know what you mean...I’ve got a terrible memory too!’
The film shows survivors’ natural and immediate reactions to some of the phrases they hear on a daily basis, taking a deliberately light-hearted approach to a very serious subject. It uses humour and passion in order to engage with the general public and encourage them to see brain injury in a different light.
