Just Around The Corner: Light of Day Documentary

Posted on April 28, 2011 at 11:09 PM

Flat Broke Productions second feature documentary film focuses on Parkinson's disease, the power of music and one mans' use of that music as his weapon against the disease.

“Just around the Corner” is the story of Light of Day Foundation founder Bob Benjamin and his battle against Parkinson’s disease. The film explores not only the disease and the challenges that come with living with PD but also how Bob responded to his diagnosis. He chose to fight back and for his weapon he chose something that is near and dear to him, rock-n- roll. What started as a birthday celebration for him at a local club with his musician friends playing has turned into a world wide, grass roots musical movement that has raised well over a million dollars for Parkinson’s research. The film shows what one man and a group of dedicated, compassionate friends can accomplish when they put their minds, and their music, into action!

A special screening of this documentary will be shown on Thursday, May 5, 2011 at the Greg Freewin Theatre in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  For details, see Events.
