Breast Fest and Films

Rethink Breast Cancer is committed to producing compelling films that tell the stories of young women and offer different perspectives on the experience of breast cancer.

About Her

About Her tells the intimate story of nine young women facing life in the wake of their HER2+ breast cancer diagnosis.  Filled with humour and candour, each woman’s unique experience is woven together into a shared portrait of each painful and hopeful chapter of discovery, treatment and recovery, punctuated by excerpts from one woman’s acclaimed blog voiced by Kim Cattrall.

About Her is directed by Phyllis Ellis and produced by Rethink Breast Cancer, Henry Less Productions and Shaftesbury in association with the W Network.

WE WON! ABOUT HER took home the Donald Brittain award for best doc program at the Canadian Screen Awards!

HIGH RISK: A Rethink Breast Cancer Film

An inherited gene mutation, a family history of breast cancer, or chest radiation before age thirty can lead some young women to be considered high risk for breast cancer.

While the number of young women at high risk is low, the impact of being informed that one is at high risk is large. Join 7 young women as they discuss the how they found out they were at a higher risk for breast cancer and how this information has shaped and is shaping the decisions they are making to address their elevated risk.
