I Have Tourette’s But Tourette’s Doesn’t Have Me (2005)
This insightful Home Box Office documentary profiles some American children afflicted with Tourette’s syndrome — a hereditary neurological disorder manifested by recurrent, involuntary vocal and motor tics. More than a dozen youngsters ranging from ages 6 to 13 discuss the stigma of Tourette’s, what it’s like to grow up with the condition, control measures and the challenges they face to be viewed as normal.
