Programmer's Notes

This documentary really just rocked me to my core. There’s something so awesome about documenting the final days of a man’s life as he does what he loves and spends time with the person he loves most. I 100% understand the implications of a life-threatening prognosis and I wish more could be done in the way of cancer treatment. The story of Eric Sun is one of immense strength and fortitude in the face of death itself, and he shows the world what he loves through this film.
