Woman Unable to Move or Speak Communicates by Blinking

Seventeen years ago, Maree Bourke-Calliss suffered a massive stroke from a knock received during a netball game. She's now what the medicos call "Locked In", unable to move or speak. Her brain is 100% there, but it's inside a body that can only communicate by blinking. For this interview, we sent Maree a bunch of questions in advance. It took her nearly a week to blink out the answers. In the video, Maree's responses are read out by her sister, Berni. Produced and directed by Monique Schafter and Aaron Smith for Hungry Beast.
