No More Needles Please (1997)


Twelve-year-old James Jarvis and his mother Catherine travel around the world to find a cure for James’ diabetes. This observational documentary, partly photographed by James, explores the options for people with diabetes – from pancreas transplant to insulin injections.

Curator’s notes

The documentary is narrated and shot by James. It would be particularly useful for young sufferers of the disease.
