The Footnote Film Project – Global Clubfoot Awareness

Image

The Footnote Film Project is a journey across the globe to explore and raise awareness of clubfoot – a congenital birth defect that can leave children unable to walk for the rest of their lives – and how it can be treated for a few hundred dollars with just plaster casts and the right training.

Interviewing medical providers, patients, parents, and leading experts across New Zealand, Vietnam, Ghana, Nicaragua, the United States, and Canada, the film tells the story of a non-surgical technique rising from obscurity in Iowa City, Iowa, to becoming the gold standard of treatment for clubfoot.

Unfortunately, the Western world is largely unaware of clubfoot and how great the need is for targeted philanthropy. This film is a labor of love by two college grads – one of whom was born with bilateral clubfoot (with both feet affected) and treated surgically – who fundraised, planned, filmed, and edited everything.

Donate to Miraclefeet and help ensure that no clubfoot is left untreated.
