EXCLUSIVE: Meghan L. O’Hara, who executive produced with Michael Moore this election season’s TrumpLand as well as his Oscar-nominated documentary Sicko, has written and directed the very personal docu The C Word. The feature-length pic centering on the war against cancer has been making the run of the festival gauntlet and now bows via Abramorama in New York on November 25 and then Los Angeles on December 9.
The docu, narrated by Morgan Freeman, asks the question: Why are we sick when the science tells us we could be well? Anchored by O’Hara and neuroscientist Dr. David Sevran-Schreiber — both cancer survivors — it explores the current economic model that puts profits first, making our bodies a breeding ground for disease, and a better bottom line for companies that keep it that way. Together, the pair explores the systematic failings of society to keep people well.
