“ Love this film. It is essentially Breast Cancer Undressed."
17 Short Films About Breasts... the film's power lies in the surprising candor with which the women speak about some of the most intimate issues of their lives. Nursing, sexuality, aging and breast cancer are central to stories of the film. Making their private stories public it becomes an act of courage, and a gift to other women facing the same issues of breast cancer. Seventeen Short Films About Breasts is a profound affirmation of life.
