In My Own Time - Diary of a Cancer Patient

Haut de la page

In 1991, Joseph Viszmeg, an Edmonton filmmaker, was diagnosed with a rare form of adrenal cancer which was already spreading to other organs. Doctors called him terminally ill, with perhaps a year to live. Four years later, Joseph Viszmeg is very much alive, In My Own Time is his personal account of living with this disease. The film gives a rare opportunity to experience the ever-changing reality of Joseph Viszmeg. Determination, gentle humour, firm courage and hope prevail. One man's remarkable story of life challenges us to examine the very basics of human existence. Who am I? What is the purpose of my life? What would I do in similar circumstances? This film is about the power of healing that lies within us all.

1995, 45 min 03 s
