The Other Dr. Gilmer

Scripted Feature
Executive Producer
Based on the book by

Based on the critically acclaimed book from Dr. Benjamin Gilmer (Penguin / Random House), The Other Dr. Gilmer is the story of a beloved small town physician, Dr. Vince Gilmer, who murders his father for mysterious reasons. Vince’s successor, coincidentally named Dr. Benjamin Gilmer, becomes obsessed with understanding what drove Vince to snap. A true crime investigation coupled with a medical mystery, and a social justice crusade, ultimately changes the course of both their lives. This film will take us on a harrowing journey that questions the boundaries of the self, the fallibility of the human brain, and the compassion we should have for each other.

Vince’s story persists – he has recently been granted clemency by the state of Virginia but is still in prison. Support Vince’s GoFundMe here.
