My Healing Journey: Seven Years with Cancer

Haut de la page

In 1991, Edmonton filmmaker Joe Viszmeg was diagnosed with a rare form of adrenal cancer and told he would not live through the year. Four years later, Viszmeg completed the eloquent film In My Own Time - Diary of a Cancer Patient. In the subsequent three years, Viszmeg continued his courageous filmmaking. This new work, My Healing Journey: Seven Years with Cancer, blends segments of the first film with the extraordinary story of how, with the support of his family, he survived the roller coaster of a deadly cancer until his death in the summer of 1999. A mixture of personal journals, often humorous narration, medical interviews and moving images.

1999, 46 min 39 s
