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?
Led by narrator and executive producer Morgan Freeman, THE C WORD reveals some amazing truths that no one is talking about on a grand scale – until now.
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.
Our film premiered at the Hamptons Film Festival last year, has been in over 25 festivals since, and has already won 7 awards.
