The Cancer Conflict (2021)
Directed by Thomas Meadmore, 86 mins
World Premiere, panel discussion and drinks reception
What would you trust if your life was on the line?
The latest figures from the American Medical Association state that up to 90% of cancer patients look for treatment outside of their healthcare system, a decision that doubles the risk of death.
In The Cancer Conflict, we follow the journeys of Grant and Surinder as they navigate the range of treatment options available following their cancer diagnosis.
When taking treatment into their own hands, how will Grant who's chosen evidence-based treatment and Surinder, who's chosen a completely alternative route, make informed choices in an online world of misinformation? And what are the consequences of turning away from experts?
We were honoured to host the online World Premiere of The Cancer Conflict at the 2021 Global Health Film Festival and are delighted to premiere this important film in-person!
The discussion after this most recent screening was moderated by Global Health Film Founder and Director Gerri McHugh, in conversation with film director Thomas Meadmore, Consultant Clinical Oncologists Dr Robert Glynne-Jones and Dr Andreas Makris, and Fred McCormack, a cancer patient.
