American Indie – DocEast Coast Premiere BEAUTY AND THE BREAST, Liliana KomorowskaCanada / 2013 / 86 min / BluRay / DCP / English A first-time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into the devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival.The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of the disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences. Their individual journeys offer many preventive choices, surgical procedures and treatments, making them hope that it’s possible to keep the cancer at bay. Candid and self-effacing, the women bare their souls as well as their scars. Regardless of their social status, looks and age, they manage to dismiss society’s general perception of feminine beauty and adapt to living with their mutilated bodies while still maintaining grace and pride. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience, but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity but as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find a cure.Producers: Liliana Komorowska / Cinematographer: Jan Paweł PełechVan Royko, Stephanie Weber Biron, Tomi Grgicewic, Zacharie Fay, Sébastien Duguay/ Editor: Marie Christine Sarda / Composer: Paweł Lucewicz / Contact: Producer/Director: Liliana Komorowska email@example.com www.beautyandthebreastmovie.com twitter.com/BATBmovie @BATBmovie www.facebook.com/beautyandthebreast Sponsored by Gilda's Club South Florida _
