Terminally Ill

Directed by Chris Cole

Produced by Devin Tusa, George Rush, Caroline Kaplan, Topher Lin

United States | English | 8' | Fiction

When a rapper is summoned to his grandmother's deathbed, he engages in a madcap freestyle in a desperate attempt to prevent her from dying.

It’s rare to find a film that can have you in stitches, and then sobbing, all in under seven minutes! This is a touching film about a young man’s relationship with his grandmother, as he struggles to accept her terminal illness… told through rap! Expertly directed by Chris Cole (who, as a Bay Area native, I’m sad to lose to LA!) and featuring awesome performances all around, this might actually be my favorite film in this year’s lineup.
