Episodic Digital Short Series
Director: Melissa Dalley
Writer: Melissa Dalley
Zebras is a series of digital shorts that tell the brutally honest, funny and painful stories of a family living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
Jade and Winston are worried about mortgages and pre-school and getting the Volvo fixed and all that normal stuff. Oh, and also, Jade can't drive or be alone with the kids because she might faint and/or have a seizure at any
moment. Struggling with EDS- and it's many associated syndromes- sets the scene for this poignant and wry look at life as a Zebra.
Why The Zebra?
Doctor's have a rule of thumb, "If you hear hoofbeats, don't look for a zebra"
to remind them to look to the most common diagnoses when treating a patient. But what about if you really ARE a Zebra? People with EDS are almost always misdagnosed and it can take years for them to figure out what's actually going on.
