8:00PM - Post-film discussion with director Meghan O'Hara, moderated by Dr. Alessandro Papa from the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Newport Hospital

From executive producer Morgan Freeman comes a bold new film that will forever change the way we view cancer. At its heart are powerful twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD’s own director, Meghan O'Hara. After braving the journey from diagnosis to wellness, Meghan and David join forces to expose systematic failings in our society, which reinforce the bad habits that predispose us to disease. Together, they lead us on a wild ride of discovery, which reveals crucial hidden scientific evidence, exposes the absurdity of the status quo, and follows a vibrant cast of characters who are changing the game. At its core, the film dares to ask the critical question: if the majority of cancers are preventable ... what are we waiting for?
