One of UT’s own to be shown in Gasparilla Film Fest
Sean Malloy, a senior Film And Media Arts Major here at UT, will have his six minute documentary shown at this year’s Gasparilla International Film Festival. The documentary features Malloy’s uncle, Thomas Eger and his struggle with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma, a rare form of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
‘He has been tested endlessly and it took tons of doctors and tests to find out what he had wrong with him. Initially he was given two years to live,’ Malloy said.
The film festival is from Thursday, February 26th to Saturday, March 7th. Malloy’s screening will take place Friday February 27th at 6:20 pm at Channelside Theaters. Tickets for Malloy’s showing are $5. He asked for support from his fellow students and added, ‘Thomas Eger will be there if anyone wants to ask any questions about his disease and what he has been through.’
