Same but Different: Phoebe’s Story

An international Emmy Award -winning and BAFTA -nominated collection of eight short documentary portraits, featuring different children from across the UK that explain “what it’ is like to be me”.
The films are emotional, and insightful, and have been praised for their non-patronising approach. They convey the theme of inclusion whilst subtley educating the viewer about what it is like to live as a young person different from others.
“I can’t run around too much mad”. Meet 7- year-old Phoebe, who sings “I want to be a normal girl”, refusing to let Type 1 diabetes get in the way of her life and ambitions.
