The documentary holds relevance for any cancer patient fighting the fight as well as for survivors of the war. Not As I Pictured is an autobiographical 54-minute film following Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist John Kaplan’s unexpected cancer journey. Free national distribution began in January 2011; the film will air on PBS stations nationwide beginning September 2011.
An educational guide from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), in booklet form, accompanies the film to help viewers and support groups use the project to continue their own focus on a positive attitude toward diagnosis, treatment, and the joy of recovery.
Although the topic is serious, Not As I Pictured is upbeat, very positive, and ends with John’s remission and return to health.
