Referred to as the Emperor of All Maladies, cancer touches the lives of people across all ages, cultures, races, and socio-economic backgrounds. At the same time, we are living in one of the most dynamic and exciting periods of medicine for cancer treatment. We are treating primary cancers with new and better options, enabling patients to live longer.
The subject for a new and thought-provoking documentary is the rise in incidence of brain metastasis, or secondary brain cancer, as patients are living longer with their primary cancers. Shot over the course of two years, Brain Metastases. A Documentary, explores the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of the disease through interviews, animations and live treatment footage. The film deep dives into complicated clinical data which is simplified by renowned experts. The medical community’s passion and mission to fuel advanced treatment and enhanced quality of life are crystal clear and mirrored by the American Brain Tumor Association ABTA as described by the CEO. Most compellingly, we find both hope and conviction with Brenda, a brave patient battling breast cancer that metastasized to her brain. The over-arching human element makes the film accessible for all audiences and offers valuable and up-to-date thinking on how to best battle a disease on the rise.
