Caitie's Story
Produced by: Heather Gattucio
Winner of a 2001 Gracie Allen Award. 12-year old Caitie Gattucio was born with the stunningly rare genetic skin disease ichthyosis. It affects every inch of her body, and is profoundly disfiguring. In this documentary essay, produced when Caitie was 9 years old, Caitie and her mother Heather discuss the disorder: how it has affected them physically and mentally; how it has impacted their entire family.
