Teenaa Kaur Pasricha – award-winning filmmaker.
How many people do you know who have undergone treatment of Cancer? Cancer is spreading at a high rate all around the world.
One in eight women are getting diagnosed with Breast Cancer in India and USA. And most people, especially women, ignore their health and when they do get to know about Cancer detection they don’t know what to expect in the coming future. But there is one film which will plug this gap.
We are excited to let you know about a documentary film on Cancer being made by Ms. Teenaa Kaur Pasricha, an award-winning filmmaker based in India who herself is a Breast cancer survivor. Teenaa’s relentless work to bring 1984 to the forefront succeeded with her most well-researched and most awarded film ‘1984, When the Sun didn’t Rise’ receiving the National Film Award for Best investigative film category in 2018 having been screened in film festivals and universities thus bringing the discussion on massacre of 1984 to the international platform.
Her next film tentatively titled “When the light entered my wounds” will be a journey of her experiences as a survivor and on what causes Cancer and the way ahead to lead a disease-free life. It will be useful for people of all age groups especially those who are interested in leading a healthy life, Cancer survivors, cancer patients, and caregivers. This will be an international film as there will be resources from the USA like oncologists and Cancer Researchers as a part of the film. We are positive that the film will once again create a stir internationally.This film will be invaluable for people diagnosed with Cancer, Cancer Survivors and anyone trying to lead a Cancer-free healthy life.
