Films of Record Documentary Brett: A Life With No Arms
09 October 2015
Filmmaker Roger Graef’s first-ever documentary, One Of Them Is Brett, was made 50 years ago. It was a portrait of Brett as a spirited four-year old riding a bicycle, feeding himself, fighting his brothers with his feet. His parents, Barbara and Peter Nielsen, moved from Australia to Britain to get him prosthetic arms, which Brett immediately rejected. And it stayed that way.
