Transfatty Lives

At 30, Patrick O'Brien was TransFatty: 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.
