The Documentary

If people perceive you as disabled, does that shape your life? A filmmaker confronts the stigma of disability while coming to terms with his own limb difference.

First-time filmmaker Jason Schneider set out to parallel his own story of overcoming adversity on the racetrack with stories of others like him. His thesis? That amputees don’t see the world through, or buy into, a disabled label. But when an accident forces him to question the very meaning of disability, his sense of self unravels. Through personal accounts, interviews with the people who know him best, and profiles from a diverse group of amputees, Jason dissects and reframes his life, intertwining the trials and tribulations of building a race car with his personal journey for self acceptance.

This is a feature length documentary scheduled for independent release summer 2019. We hope you’ll follow us on your social network of choice and help spread awareness for Despite The Loss.
