"Life Kills Me" – A Global Lens Recap And Discussion

Dr. Jimmie Reeves, Paul Hunton, and Dr. Gary Elbow recently moderated a discussion and took questions over “Life Kills Me,” a selection from the Global Lens film series.

Here’s the synopsis for the film, taken from the Global Lens Film Initiative website:

“Life and death come wrapped in a mutual embrace, both absurd and poignant, in this smart comedy about an unlikely friendship between a grieving cinematographer and a morbidly obsessed drifter. At work on a seriously schlocky, low-budget horror film, Gaspar is still reeling from the untimely death of his beloved older brother when he meets Alvaro at yet another premature funeral. A mildly sociopathic young man with an unyielding curiosity for the dark side, Alvaro soon coaxes Gaspar out of his shell in unexpected ways, in a debut film that pulses with a sure cinematic style as it channels a compassionate vision of frail, formidable, unforgettable lives.”
