An Introduction to Phenylketonuria

Natasha Macmanard is a final year undergraduate student studying BSc Media Production at De Montfort University, Leicester. Natasha is also a freelance photographer and videographer based in and around Birmingham.

Natasha created this 5 minute documentary to increase awareness about PKU by providing general information about the condition such as what it is, how it is diagnosed and how it is treated.

Natasha’s partner, University Lecturer Tom Chimiak, has PKU and it’s his positive approach to his condition that has provided her with the inspiration to create this short film.
