''Two Suitcases" is a short film by Ben Murnane. When Ben was 9 years old he was diagnosed with Fanconi anaemia, a rare genetic disease in which the bone marrow stops working properly. "Two Suitcases" is based on Ben's memoir, "Two in a Million", and focuses on the important role creativity played in Ben's life during his teenage years. Ben's film was made by teenagers living with chronic illnesses in collaboration with professional filmmakers and artists, film students, and young volunteers. "Two Suitcases" won Best Film in the Under 18s category at the Charlie Chaplin Film Festival 2012 and Best Film at the First Cut! Youth Film Festival 2012.
