D TOUR: A Rock-N-Roll Film About Life, Death, and Bodily Functions
Co-Presented by Exploratorium's Cinema Arts
Monday, May 27th, 2013 | 7:30 p.m.
D TOUR is a powerful, evocative and deeply personal story. Combining a band road trip with a personal quest for an organ donor, the film follows the journey of Pat Spurgeon, a talented indie rock musician on the rise, whose life becomes consumed with the care and feeding of his failing kidney. Spurgeon, a previous kidney transplant recipient, is part of the organ donor / recipient community, a special group whose lives become entwined in life and death. On one side are those who are saved through tragedy or by an incredible gift from a living donor; on the other are the families of the donors, who are offered a chance for hope and bittersweet resolution for their loss. D TOUR is filled with unexpected twists and the joys and sorrows of life.
