Real-Life “Wonder” Kids Come to Life In New Facial Anomalies Film
Kansas City, MO - Coinciding with the release of one of 2017’s most anticipated movies, “Wonder,” four children with facial anomalies teach other kids they’re more alike than different in the short documentary, “Just Like You Films - Facial Anomalies,” debuting November 15th on YouTube.
Wanting to show others that they are Just Like You, Annalise, Billy, Luke and Winston are joined in the film by their best friends. They tell their real-life stories, explaining what it’s like to live with facial paralysis, lymphangioma, and other conditions. Like the book and upcoming movie, “Wonder,” the stars of the film show courage as they earn empathy and understanding.
In addition to being available on YouTube, the film will be played prior to group screenings of the “Wonder” movie at AMC Theatres.
In launching its 9th film, Just Like You Films calls upon our communities, our kids and the world to learn, understand and accept those living with facial anomalies. The kids, award-winning journalist Hannah Storm, and internationally renowned surgeons, Operation Smile Founder, Dr. Bill Magee, Dr. Teresa O and Dr. Milton Waner, explain the conditions, treatments and model of how to be a good friend to someone living with a facial anomaly.
JLY-Facial Anomalies shares the perspective of courageous children living with facial anomalies who are not defined or limited by their conditions. Instead, they are “just like you.”
JLY Films distributes its films free of charge and operates with the help of an outstanding volunteer team. We can provide interviews with children featured in the new film.
