Every Other Day is a film from The Noble Lab and photographer Scott Van Osdol that shares the story of Rode Lewis, a rancher in West Texas who lives about 180 miles outside of Ft. Stockton. Lewis lives with end-stage renal disease, and every other day he wakes up at 2:20 in the morning to drive those 180 miles to Ft. Stockton for dialysis. This film follows Lewis as he balances fatherhood, livelihood, and survival.
