At 30, Patrick O’Brien was TransFatty, a New York City DJ, internet personality, and filmmaker. Then his legs started shaking. Transfatty Lives takes you on an emotional rollercoaster into the dark heart of ALS. As the director and star of his own documentary, Patrick films every step of his debilitatiing journey from first diagnosis through paralysis. Forcefully lacking in self-pity, he captures the emotion, humor, and absurdity of life as he makes art, gets political, falls in love, fathers a son, and fights depression.
Reception to follow. All proceeds benefit the Patrick O’Brien Foundation.
