Irish filmmaker Paddy Slattery is paralysed and directs films from his wheelchair

Paddy Slattery from Ireland wins awards for the short films he directs and produces, but it was never his plan to pursue a career in cinema.

He comes from a village in the countryside west of Dublin and his first job was on a building site.

Our reporter Colm Flynn has been to meet Paddy to hear the story of how his life changed direction after a car crash that left him paralysed.
