The beautiful new Full Frame Theater in downtown Durham will be home to the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival’s Third Friday series of free screenings, which will be held every month through November. First up: two free screenings of Emma Davie and Morag McKinnon’s acclaimed documentary I Am Breathing, as part of the film’s Global Screening Day, when it will be screened in over fifteen countries around the world.

Friday, June 21, 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The film tells the story of Neil Platt, who goes from being a healthy young father to becoming paralyzed from the neck down following an ALS diagnosis. He puts together a letter and memory box for his baby son, Oscar, and with humor and honesty shares the last stage of his life through a blog. With his posts forming the film’s narration, I Am Breathing listens to Neil as he ponders “what makes us human” in the last months of his life.
