Transfatty Lives

2015 5.0/5 (23)   HD 85 minutes

At 30, Patrick O'Brien was TransFatty, a New York City DJ, Internet personality, and filmmaker. Then his legs started shaking. Defying sentimentality, TRANSFATTY LIVES takes you on an emotional roller coaster from Patrick's wild, fun-loving days into the dark heart of 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, fathers a son, and fights extreme depression and paranoia. At 40, Patrick has completed this film by typing directions to his editors with the movements of his pupils. TRANSFATTY LIVES is not a movie about death. It is about life.
