INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL OF MANHATTAN will showcase, for their opening night, two shorts made by Mike Schwartz and myself: CANCER WARRIORS and CANCER REVOLUTION. Please attend! Tickets are $14.00.
Every American has a 43 percent chance of getting cancer in his or her lifetime. The doctors are far from a cure. But the good news is that more people are surviving with cancer, and living longer. These two short films document that experience. If you know someone who is going through this experience, please invite them to attend the discussion and share their story.
FIRST SHORT FILM: CANCER WARRIORS
Three very different people respond in three different ways to a cancer diagnosis, and survive.
SECOND SHORT FILM: CANCER REVOLUTION
Fred Ho is an Asian American jazz composer who believes he has found the truth of the cancer that is killing him. Before he dies, he has a message for the world, which he tells in his own words, while his orchestra plays his amazing music.
Both these shorts are works in progress and there will be a lively discussion afterwards. Please join the dialogue!
