Trailer


“He Ain't Heavy” is a powerful yet intimate look at mental disability through the lens of one family's experience. Filmmaker Mattie Lufkin’s drive to get this project done is an inspiration. While a loving portrait of a family’s struggle, it pulls few punches, which makes the narrative compelling for all audiences.
