The Book of Laughs

Book of Laughs, The

Best Women's Film Award -Atlanta FF
"Dear Bo, Remember one day when I was little..." Thus begins the poetic journey of two sisters - one of whom is terminally ill with cancer. Cancer - it's a word that all of us know - and all of us fear. If not personally affected by cancer, we all know someone who has been a victim of this terribly complex disease. And as researches seek a cure and health practitioners promote cancer prevention, many continue to lose loved ones. Many will have to face this type of grief, which clearly is the purpose of this autobiographical program - to grieve a loss and yet to cherish the memories of a loving relationship. Here we witness an often surrealistic inter-mingling of the memories of two sisters - the filmmaker and her terminally ill sister - during three stages of their lives. In the process of watching we are moved and, hopefully, are able to better understand a grieving process about death; something all of us will face eventually in our lives. Produced by Emmy Award winning filmmaker Roberta Cantow (Clotheslines.) 98/08DE SCA 60 min.
Note: An edited version, The Book of Laughs - Level 1, is available.
Also Produced by Roberta Cantow: Women Bringing Forth Change: A Spiritual Trilogy
