Cast & Crew
Three breast cancer survivors discuss their fight against breast cancer and the emotional and physical stages of the disease. In March 1998, three bald women came to the Cambridge studio of photographer Elsa Dorfman for a portrait session. The women -- filmmaker Deborah Dorsey, artist and teacher Carol Potoff and executive assistant Libby Levinson -- had met in a breast cancer support group. Each had lost her hair to chemotherapy. A film crew led by Dorsey's husband, filmmaker Bob Burns, captured the session's spirit as the women reflected on fighting breast cancer. The documentary entwines the high spirits of the photo shoot with voice-overs from the women and a video diary of one of Dorsey's chemotherapy sessions. Viewers also encounter the women months later, their shorn locks growing back at last, as they reflect on their experiences.
