The filmmaker Meghan L. O’Hara will introduce the film and
lead a talk-back afterwards
Cancer is no laughing matter – but the archaic way we are beating it, is! With a dose of good humor, heart, and a touch of rock-n’-roll beat, THE C WORD
reveals the forces at play keeping us sick and dares to ask: if up to 70% of cancer deaths are preventable … what are we waiting for? And, in asking the question, director Meghan L. O’Hara reveals astounding truths that no one is talking about on a grand scale — until now. At its heart are powerful, twin stories: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD
’s own director, and cancer survivor Meghan L. O’Hara. After braving the journey from diagnosis to wellness, Meghan and David join forces on a wild ride of discovery; including hidden science, the absurdity of the status quo, and a vibrant cast of characters changing the game. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, THE C WORD
message is simple, life-changing, radical: we can beat cancer before cancer beats us.
