When doctors diagnosed 19-year-old rock star Jason Becker with Lou Gehrig's Disease, they said he would never make music again and that he wouldn't live to see his 25th birthday. 22 years later, without the ability to move or to speak, Jason is alive and making music with his eyes.

JASON BECKER: NOT DEAD YET is a feature-length documentary film that tells the incredible story of a guitar legend who refuses to give up on his dream of being a musician despite the most incredible odds. It is a story of dreams, love, and the strength of the human spirit.

The film has been made with the full co-operation of Jason and the Becker family, who have given their consent for this to be the first feature-length documentary film about his life. They have provided their entire family archive of never-before-seen photos and footage.

Four Stars
--Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"Surprisingly winning, even lighthearted at times."
- NY Magazine

"Expertly measured ... Vile overcomes different bleak odds, bringing the same winsome shine to his subject that emanates from the besotted guitar geeks who now leave offerings at Becker's withered feet."
- Michelle Orange, Village Voice

"Inspiring" (4 out of 5 Stars)
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out NY

My friend and I saw this at DOC NYC and it was a really moving film. We had never heard of Jason Becker before but we're glad we do now.
