About the Film
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Directed by Julian Schnabel
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is based on Jean-Dominique Bauby’s memoir, revealing his life after suffering a massive stroke that left him with a condition known as locked-in syndrome. The condition paralyzed him from the neck down, leaving only his left eye as a portal of communication with the outside world.
