Acclaimed ALS Movie, TransFatty Lives, Now Playing in San Diego (Jan 8-14)

 

TAG:

In this documentary 10 years in the making, internet sensation, DJ, and

filmmaker Patrick O’ Brien (known as TransFatty to his legions of fans), is diagnosed with

ALS. He decides to make a documentary about life after his diagnosis, resulting in a

humorous, touching, and wildly inventive account of a man who refuses to let his disease

define who he is.

 

Synopsis :

At 30, Patrick O’Brien was TransFatty: NYC DJ, Internet personality, and

filmmaker. Then he was diagnosed with ALS (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig’s disease). Given 2 to 5

years to live, Patrick braves the unthinkable and turns his camera onto himself. Forcefully

lacking self-pity, he captures the emotion, humor, and absurdity of real life as he makes art,

gets political, falls in love, and fathers a son in this winner of the Audience Award at the

Tribeca Film Festival.

 

Critic Quotes:

An unusually playful and emotionally involving first-person chronicle of

serious illness.” – Dennis Harvey, Variety

“A doc as vibrant as its auteur’s mind, even as his body is rendered immobile.” – Meave

Gallagher, L.A. Weekly

“Deeply moving and rambunctiously funny.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

“By its end, “TransFatty Lives” leaves no doubt that its hero not only lives to accept his

state, but thrives on it.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire
