ROLL WITH ME,
A JOURNEY ACROSS AMERICA 

 

“Gabe’s bright light served as a beacon for the group and for the countless people they met along the way. With his sense of humor, sincerity, grit, and unwavering optimism, Gabe helped everyone. People like Gabe remind us of the power of the human spirit, and the importance of using that inner strength to build a life that will empower others. A gem!”
– THE HOLLYWOOD TIMES

 

“Roll With Me,” directed by Lisa France, which focuses on Gabriel Cordell, a paraplegic man determined to navigate his human-powered wheelchair across the United States in 100 days. Human drama within cast and crew unfolds, and everyone in Cordell’s path is transformed by the experience. This film won the festival’s Carpe Diem Andretta Award — for best reflecting living life to the fullest.

"This film, about will, fortitude and the human condition stays with you for a while, prodding you to finally do whatever it is you've wanted to do for some time. The filmmaker and subjects don't ask you to take charge, but you can't help it. And they show how the benevolence of others can shape your journey.” 
– ALLISON DUNNE, NPR’S 51%
