The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are a group of rare connective tissue disorders that can affect every part of the body. And EDS is an invisible illness, just like many other chronic conditions. People living with EDS may be severely disabled, but people around them can’t see their disability, which leads to a common misconception: How can you be sick and disabled if you look perfectly fine? ’We Are Visible’ will show seven stories including people of all ages (5 – 60 years old), from six different countries with diverse backgrounds, different financial standing who are all differently affected by this invisible condition. They will share their challenges, fights, and fears, but also their achievements, hopes, and triumphs.
