Kurzfilmprogramm: Perspektiven auf Krebs / Short Films on Cancer

by Simone van Dusseldorp, Ian Barnes, Eric Liston Grant, Janne Schmidt, Anders Walter Special Screenings

While waiting for the results of her breast examination, Sophie undergoes a rollercoaster of emotions. Meanwhile, 15-year-old terminally ill David wishes for nothing more than to spend one hour alone with a woman. Clara describes her fight against leukaemia analogous to the physical exertion of running a marathon through a desert storm. Student Teun’s housemates organise a farewell party before he begins a course of chemotherapy for testicular cancer. And finally, young Alfred finds solace and comfort on his deathbed in the fantasy world of ‘Helium’. Organised in collaboration with the Swiss Cancer League (Krebsliga), this line-up comprises five short films that shed light on living with cancer from several different perspectives.
