SHAKE WITH ME is a documentary film about Debra Magid, an artist who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD) in 2012.  In the fall of 2016, Debra agreed to let her son, filmmaker, Zack Grant, document the relationship between her art and her condition.  What started as an exploration of Debra's artistic growth in the face of PD transformed into a larger story of creativity, health, family and the will to cope.  After a successful festival run and numerous screenings within the PD community, the film is now streaming online on Vimeo.  "I’m the most proud of how the film is both personal and relatable," says Grant.  "It’s a raw, unfiltered look at my mom’s health and art, and how our family copes with her PD.  But it’s also a story about adversity and perseverance that transcends Parkinson's."
