Following the screening, KING5 News anchor and Western alumna Joyce Taylor interviewed Minton-Small about the making of “Gleason,” an emotionally powerful film about five years in the life of Steve Gleason, a former New Orleans Saints defensive back who became a father soon after being diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS.
