JASON BECKER: NOT DEAD YET
Jesse Vile, 90 min, UK
In 1991, Jason Becker was on his way to guitar-god status, tapped to play for David Lee Roth at just 19. Then, the diagnosis: what he called a “lazy limp” in his leg was ALS (AKA Lou Gehrig's Disease). Jason would not go on tour, and might not have 5 years left to live. But two decades later, Jason’s still here, making music. It is a story of dreams, love, and the strength of the human spirit. Winner of the Audience Award at Cinequest.
