Narrated by US actor, Morgan Freeman
GIANT is delighted to screen the European premiere of THE C WORD on 17th November, 5:15-7:30 pm. The film will include a Q&A after the show with the film’s producer, Pascaline Servan-Schreiber.
A powerful story narrated by Academy Award winner US actor Morgan Freeman it is taking the USA by storm, and has picked up 7 awards already at international film festivals.
Cancer is no laughing matter – but the archaic way we still deal with it is. 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?
At its heart are powerful, twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD’s own director, 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. The message is simple, life-changing, radical: we can beat cancer before cancer beats us.
Perfectly positioned on Day 2 of GIANT, which kicks off with how IBM Watson is transforming the way in which we diagnose and treat cancer, it forms a perfect bridge to Day 3 where the focus is on how developments with data and technology are changing the way in which people take charge of their health.
