Pickford Film Center’s Doctober opening-night film is a story sure to resonate with local audiences–and not just because it has a Bellingham connection. At just six months old, Waldo Dwyer was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer and began a chemotherapy regimen that left him brutally ill. Willing to do anything to ease his child’s suffering, Waldo’s father opts to treat his son with CBD oil, a decision that proves miraculous for Waldo, but alienates the Dwyers’ friends and family. Looking to relocate to a more weed-friendly community, the Dwyers landed in none other than Bellingham, where they currently reside. Much more than a pro-marijuana doc, this is an intimate love letter from father to son. Featuring a Q&A with Waldo himself as well as the Dwyer family.
