MY LEFT BREAST
Co-sponsored by Lesbian Cancer and Health Program

Still from My Left Breast

My Left Breast (Canada, 2000), Gerry Roger's award winning, intimate diary of illness and recovery takes the audience with her and partner Peggy to doctor appointments, the chemo room, the radiation chamber, and a potluck wig "hair-raiser" which she organizes in defiance of cancer. Hailed by critics as "extraordinary," "amazingly candid," "life changing" and "not to be missed." Preceded by Body Burden (France Quyeras, 2001), a lyrical essay intertwining the filmmaker's meditations on her own illness with a critique of the chummy relationship between the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and the state of our global environment.
