Mortality

My Life (1993)


Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Bob gradually accepts an imminent death coinciding with the birth of his first child. Preoccupied with the notion of immortalizing himself, he quickly begins making home movies to cover all the teachings he would otherwise be there for. Even so, a tendency to withdraw from reality prevents Bob from moving past his biggest fear: giving himself permission to let go. Directed by Bruce Joel Rubin.
