First Tuesdays with The
Award-winning doc INDESTRUCTIBLE premieres Oct 2nd!
Variety calls INDESTRUCTIBLE “an intimate, lacerating, absorbing visual diary of the three-year onset of terminal disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in aspiring filmmaker Ben Byer, INDESTRUCTIBLE is an immersive, edifying journey of acceptance, setback and strength.”
When 31 year-old Ben Byer is diagnosed with ALS, a fatal neurodegenerative disease, he begins documenting his life on camera. What begins as a series of video diaries grows into a three-year journey that takes him around the world looking for answers, and maybe even a cure. A cinematic adventure filled with extraordinary characters, breathtaking landscapes and abundant humor, Indestructible is beautifully shot by Academy Award™ nominee Roko Belic (Genghis Blues). In his first feature film, Byer takes us on a visually stunning global quest to survive as he begins to understand the power of the human condition.
Screening Information: The Tuesday, October 2nd screening begins with a Pre-Show Cocktail Reception at the Landmark Century Centre Cinema (2828
