Cate visited the recording studio one again to narrate a 5 minutes documentary: Stuart X, directed by Thibault Upton. The documentary is currently touring film festivals
Stuart X is a passion project and 5 minute documentary commissioned by The Fragile X Association of Australia.
Stuart Iredale was born with Fragile X during the 1950s; a time when the disability was little know. He was misdiagnosed with mental illness and spent 40 years of his life in psychiatric hospitals where he was misunderstood, drugged and abused.
At 60 years old Stuart was correctly diagnosed with Fragile X. He now has a set of processes and care that provide him with an entirely different quality of life.
Today he has shown progress towards recovery from years of mistreatment and responds to music therapy by dancing.
