Claire Wineland built a massive following on YouTube, simply by talking about her life and what made it — and her — remarkable.
And then, on Sept. 2 last year, at the age of 21, Wineland died.
She was killed by complications from lung transplant surgery. But really, she died of complications from cystic fibrosis, the terminal disease that hovered over her entire time on earth, even as Wineland was busy living an extraordinarily vital life while inspiring untold others.
A year later, the documentary Claire debuted, chronicling Wineland’s life and spotlighting her core messages (you can watch it for free on YouTube here). The documentary short is now angling for Oscar recognition, passing the first couple of hurdles to qualify for further consideration as best documentary short. And it’s all about giving Claire Wineland another chance to change people’s minds and lives.

CLAIRE launches on September 2nd on Claire Wineland’s YouTube Channel.
YouTube also revealed it’s producing a documentary about the late Claire Wineland, who passed away last year after chronicling her fight with cystic fibrosis on YouTube. The documentary, Claire, tells her story through interviews and footage, and explores her history of activism and advocacy. It will release in fall this year.
The film is somewhat similar to Soldiers’ Stories, a 2014 documentary short by Oscar-winning producer Nick Reed (The Lady in Room 6) and director Jonathan Kitzen. That project was built around restored stereoscopic stills taken by British, French, German and American soldiers in WWI. The filmmakers used a lot of the Ken Burns effect and stitched stills together to create an entire 3-D film short, with voiceovers by U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. That film went on to a lengthy run at the U.S. Infantry Museum at Fort Benning, Ga.
