The restless rhythms of being a teenager with an incurable illness

Type 1 diabetes, sometimes called ‘juvenile’ diabetes, is caused by an immune system that attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells. Unlike Type 2 diabetes, which is far more common, Type 1 diabetes generally develops early in life and can’t be delayed or avoided by lifestyle choices. Midnight, Three and Six chronicles how 15-year-old Grace struggles daily with the autoimmune disease, including the heavy burden it places on her parents, who try their best to let her live a normal teenage life while also keeping close watch on her condition. Artfully and compassionately constructed, the US director Joe Callander’s short documentary captures the ceaseless uncertainty of life with an incurable, potentially deadly disorder.

Director: Joe Callander

Producer: Dave Munson, Suzette Munson
