Through a child's eyes.

Make-A-Wish Ireland: “Lexie” - 40s

Make-A-Wish's Irish arm have released this charming film, which focuses on a recipient of their services who wants others to have access to the same once in a lifetime opportunity. Director Zak Razvi coaxes a personable lead performance from Lexie, who is enthused by memories of her own wish and doing her utmost to spread the joy.

The result is a sweet piece of work, with a refreshing positivity which never focuses on Lexie's condition, rather her upbeat attitude to life. Furthermore, the ad demonstrates the value of letting disabled people tell their own stories - allowing their voices to be heard on the issues which affect them most.
