Mind Over Matter

Scott Gerow
2005, 40 min

Scott Gerow knew his family wasn't perfect when he picked up the camera to document his father's struggle with morbid obesity. While filming, Scott discovered he had brain cancer. The poignant documentary Mind Over Matter, called one of the best shorts at Sundance this year, chronicles a father and son who face their own mortality and find out what it means to be a family.

2005, 38 min
