Comedian David Downs had just months to live when he entered a clinical trial of an innovative cancer treatment in the US. Within weeks, he was in complete remission, and two years later he is deemed cured. Now, he has dedicated himself to helping others facing their own cancer journeys.
In her latest film A Mild Touch of Cancer, director Annie Goldson follows David and the people he helps, hearing and seeing their stories of life and death.
A Mild Touch of Cancer will screen at the New Zealand International Film Festival 2021.
