Life. Support. Music.

PBS is featuring musician, stroke survivor, and AVMSurvivors.org member Jason Crigler in their POV series. The film is called Life. Support. Music. and it should be airing on Tuesday, July 7th but check your local listing for times and this PBS site for details.

Eric Metzgar, the filmaker, tracks a New York musician (Jason Crigler) as he remarkably recovers from a devastating (AVM) brain injury. In Eric's words, "the film speaks to anyone facing a difficult medical crisis."

I've pasted in the trailer, which looks really cool, in below. Here are some quick reviews:

"Phenomenal" - Boston Globe

"Miraculous" - Aspen Post

"Transcends one's perceptions of medicine, music, and even miracles" - indieWIRE

"A film that has caught the fancy of critics around the globe...an inspiration to thousands" - Concord Monitor
