New York Times - 12/02/2005
"[T]he director Dani Menkin presents a bracingly honest portrait of a man refusing to be defined by the limitations of his body."

Product Description:


Ami Ankilewitz has muscular dystrophy, a condition that leaves him, in his mid-30s, weighing 39 pounds. With physical movement restricted to moving one single finger of his left hand, Ankilewitz has nevertheless managed to pursue a career for himself as an animator in Israel. This stirring documentary follows Ankilewitz as he road-trips across the U.S., looking for the doctor who told him he would live to be only 28 years old.
