San Francisco-based Granato's feature-length documentary debut, D Tour, follows musician Pat Spurgeon, drummer for the Oakland band Rogue Wave, as the group embarks on a tour. Spurgeon struggles with a failing kidney, mobile dialysis, and his friends' responses to the competing claims of art and life. Granato introduces the film, which won the 2009 SF Film Society Award for best Bay Area documentary feature, and joins us for a post-screening Q&A. Rogue Wave gives an acoustic performance after the screening.
