Donor Unknown

New doc from 'Heavy Load' director
Donor-Unknown.jpg
Jerry Rothwell created one of the most touching rock documentaries of recent years with Heavy Load and reprises his ability to infuse an unusual story with charm and empathy here. When JoEllen Marsh searches for the identity of her father - previously known only as Donor 150 - she also discovers a whole squadron of siblings based across the States. Like many contemporary documentaries, there’s a twist: their charismatic father Jeffrey lives an alternative lifestyle in a van on Venice Beach.

A slight story that takes a sidewise look at the bigger issues posed, Donor Unknown nonetheless possesses an entertaining, bittersweet edge.

7/10
