WHAT IS TYPE 1 DIABETICS LIFE ?

Who knows the difficulties that need to be overcome every day? What battles must be fought against oneself, against the shame of having a device stuck on your skin forever? Can we live normally? Will others understand?

To answer these questions, we have decided to create a work of fiction rather than the often seen documentaries.

WHY THIS FILM ?

Kiana Ranjbar became a type 1 diabetic at the age of 21, she was suddenly facing a new journey, one full of battles that needed to be faced. The first of these battles was accepting her diagnosis and its lifelong nature, along with others such as the confusion that often surounds type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A desire to share her experiences of what diabetics go through with other people to help with understanding this illness has led to her decision to create a film.

She joins forces with Christophe Delesques, french actor and theatre producer, and the scriptwriting begins. The film direction is entrusted to Sami Khadraoui, a young swiss director and producer at www.badtastepictures.ch. The team already has two great actors: Elphie and Cyril Fragnière.
