Films about AT

This short animated film explains what ataxia-telangiectasia is and how it affects people.



We created a three short films about Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Families and experts talk on camera about a diagnosis of AT, what happens next and what the future holds.

Meet some of our families

Broghan Sewell is a talented junior player with Chelsea FC juniors. Broghan’s twin brother Brae has AT, a genetic condition which will impact on the boys’ lives forever.

Jilly is a fabulous fundraiser for the AT Society. She runs Jilly’s Cupcake House, and donates everything she earns from her cake orders. Not only do these donations help kids and adults with AT, she has also found it’s a fantastic way to raise awareness about AT to a massive (cake loving) audience. It’s also a chance for her to show everyone that despite having AT, she can design, bake and create beautiful cakes. Having AT does not stop Jilly from doing what she loves. Here, Jilly talks you through decorating a Jubilee traybake using the Union Jack.

As part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Merry, who has AT, planned her own Triathlon and made it happen with sheer determination, patience, will power and the support of her family and friends. Her adventure was captured on film thanks to Trapeze Film.
