GLEASON (2016 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

Gleason quickly becomes a model for what can happen when the focus is on life instead of death, on serving instead of lying down and helplessly accepting. It’s about turning irreversible, impossible circumstances into life’s possibilities as Steve Gleason fights for his life and continues the choice to live despite all odds. Great work for Director Clay Tweel as he captures the process of the fight for life. The film is well documented and perfectly portrays its heartfelt and moving story. Great work!!!
