OF MEDICINE AND MIRACLES

Documentary, Biography, Technology, Journalism

At the age of six, Emily Whitehead was diagnosed with leukemia and the lives of her and her parents were suddenly thrust into uncertainty. Through bracingly honest interviews and home videos, Of Medicine and Miracles details her family’s experience bouncing from hospital to hospital, trying to stay hopeful amidst hopelessness, and their fateful correspondence with a doctor whose research could hold the key to her survival. But time is of the essence.

A stunning feat of non-fiction filmmaking, Of Medicine and Miracles applies an acutely personal perspective to a highly publicized case, allowing Emily’s parents to speak candidly about the American healthcare system, experimental cancer treatments, and their overwhelming love for their daughter.Academy Award winner Ross Kauffman’s new documentary is a tear-jerking, heart-racing record of medical history that honors its subjects and their trauma while empowering future generations to attempt the impossible.--Cara Cusumano
