Film: GOT CANCER !

Directed by: Kankana Chakraborty


Synopsis: Films have the power to change the world!

HOPEB~Lit presents , A Voices UNheard Experimental short Film shedding light on the important subject of Cancer and Children . No One should have to fight cancer alone. When cancer strikes the very word instills the feeling of fear. A child depending on the age has different levels of fear based reactions.

In our experience with kids that had cancer we observed the positive and hopeful attitude they brought to the way they dealt with the disease. With this experimental docu-fiction short we present the deep learning that these children have taught us on how to deal with not just cancer but life itself.

True facts in the short film show how nutrition, love and care can reduce the mortality rate and awareness of how we can help kids & adults globally fight this disease with the right attitude and the right nutrition in addition to the medication.

Lets take this journey through the eyes of a mother , a regular volunteer who breaks away from a hectic life style to empathize, and our heroes the children who are enduring this disease everyday.
