SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5 | INDIE FILM SERIES
AT GEM OF THE HILL ACTIVITY CENTER

In partnership with Gem of the Hills Activity Center, Indie Film Series returns with a free screening of documentary film, HI I’M BLAKE (d. Jon Michael Simpson, U.S.) that was filmed over the course of six years and recently inspired the development of the “Hi I’m” series featured on Magnolia Network. 
   
After a life-altering gymnastics accident leaves Blake Hyland in a coma, his friends and family cling to hope for a miracle. After weeks of waiting, at last his eyes open, and his optimistic family refuses to believe in anything less than a full recovery. HI I’M BLAKE follows the Hyland’s struggle to paint a new picture for their lives. As Blake attempts to reintegrate into society with a traumatic brain injury, it is a mystery if he will ever walk again, gain an education, or return to his former life. Filmed over six years, this inspirational story captures the joy of a boy with profound hope, the sacrificial love of a family, and seeks to answer the question, “When will Blake fully recover?”
