Not Going Quietly

It’s one thing to take on an unspeakably tragic disease – at age 32, husband and father Ady Barkan is diagnosed with ALS and given 3-4 years to live – it’s quite another to take on a political system and launch a universal health care movement. A born activist, Barkan transcends bodily limits and hits the road on a Be a Hero campaign, bird-dogging politicians to sway their votes in favor of healthcare reform. This exhilarating film celebrates the relentless and fierce practice of democracy and the power of personal storytelling as a tool for change. It also won the Audience Award at this year’s SXSW Film Festival!
