Part of the Disability Film Series, this event is free to the public and the screening will be immediately followed by a panel discussion with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) medical professionals.
“The Lucky Man” is a compelling biographical movie produced by a young Culver City man who died of Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). Brian Murphy shares his inspirational story while fighting a terminal illness. His wife and young children bring much energy and wisdom to the film. The award-winning movie is very thoughtful, compelling, and inspiring.
This event is open to the public, but may be of special interest to healthcare providers wishing to learn more about ALS, students seeking education regarding chronic illness, individuals living with ALS and their families and filmmakers or film studies students.
The screening will be held at the Culver City Senior Center located at 4095 Overland Avenue, Culver City, CA 90232. This event is sponsored by the Culver City Disability Advisory Committee and the Culver City Senior Citizens Association.
