Shot cinematically, It Ain’t Over is a visually stunning documentary that follows Dr. Edward Dobson, a man accustomed to counseling people through suffering, as he comes to grips with the unusual disease eating away his body.
ALS or “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” is a degenerative disorder that systemically incapacitates the body, commandeering the ability to hold, speak, walk, swallow, and even breathe until it causes the lungs to fatally collapse. They don’t know what causes it, and there is no cure. After learning he had 2-5 years to live, Ed chose to examine what hope looks like in situations where it doesn’t exist. –SXSW
