Danny

This screening took place on
Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 8:00pm
Old Fire Hall

Dir. Aaron Zeghers, Lewis Bennett, 2019, MB|BC, 50 mins

After being diagnosed with leukemia in 1993, Danny picks up a camcorder and begins to create a film, with himself as the central character. The lo-fi Vancouver cityscape reflects back an alienated existentialism as Danny grapples with his personal demons, spurred on in the face of his own mortality. Danny - as himself - is impressive, funny, and intelligent enough to have built his own sailboat, but also neurotic and full of regret. What comes forth is a sometimes-hilarious, sometimes-heartbreaking found footage documentary about disease, mental illness, manhood, and the meaning of life.

Co-director Aaron Zeghers in attendance.
