Funny, poignant, and profound, Long Live My Happy Head introduces us to the unique talent, understated wit, and unenviable journey of Gordon Shaw, a Scottish comic book artist who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in his early 30s. Not the least bit self-pitying but with puckish humor and admirable honesty, Gordon allows the film to accompany him and his long-distance true love Shawn—a sweet American living in Virginia—as they navigate the fragile rollercoaster of health challenges and caregiving amidst the onset of COVID.

The film will be shown as part of the Frameline film festival on Sunday, June 19 at 11:00 am, at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, which will include a post-screening discussion and Q&A with our very own neuro-oncologist, Dr. Susan Chang.

The documentary will also be available to stream online from June 24-30, for those who are not able to attend the Roxie screening.
