showtimes and tickets

The story of Ralph W. Moss, PhD, a young science-writer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, who risked everything by blowing the whistle on a massive cover-up involving a promising cancer therapy being tested at the center.

Ralph lived a double life, working as a loyal employee within Sloan-Kettering's Public Affairs Department while also recruiting his fellow employees to help anonymously leak the positive results of an unconventional therapy called “Laetrile” to the public—through a newly formed underground organization they called “Second Opinion”.

It was fascinating to see the interview with Dr. Moss, but the film left us with some unanswered questions. Wasn't Steve Mc Queen using laetrile at the time of his death. Hadn't he rejected FDA-approved treatments in favor of using laetrile? And wasn't there a case in the late '70's of a child who had died after his parents rejected FDA-approved methods so they could use laetrile? I also wish we had learned why Jane Brody wrote an article vs latrile in the NY Times. If Ms. Brody is deceased, couldn't the filmmakers have interviewed her colleagues?

Dr. Ralph Moss, thru his writings and several telephone-conferral conversations, has been the main guiding hand for my wife's decade-long struggle to successfully control and remediate a serious breast cancer condition in her body-- without needing to resort to any form of toxic chemotherapy or radiation, and utilizing the minimum surgery possible.

The man is like "a river to his people". Doctor Moss's newsletter for many years contained--freely given--such useful knowledge that one could confront any practicioner, be they conventional or alternative, and cause his or her arguments to crumple before that impeccable, journal-referenced scholarship. Rather than mumble some layman's half-remembered concepts, we just handed folks one of his on-point essays, and waited for the expression of admiration and interest and willingness-to-cooperate to come back from the recipient. (IF they were open-minded.)

As a member of the Ralph Moss mailing list I was given an opportunity to preview the DVD version of this film online, during a special multi-day window of complimentary viewing.

It’s awesome. Not-seeing it isn't even an option. It is factual, and riveting, and eye-opening, and potentially mind-blowing in a lifesaving way. To my mind it’s irrelevant that it’s also entertaining and compelling. If it were as boring as a CPR demo film it would still be essential.

Opening night will be 7pm. Eric & Ralph will also conduct Q&As Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. We will make sure this is added to this post by then.

A riveting revelation of the cover-up in the 70's of Laetrile's efficacy with cancer; offering an inside view during that time, suggesting how 40 years later the American cancer machine continues to grind on and on, with still no accepted 'standard of care' that works.

I heard the discussion on NPR/WNYC this morning. Obviously this documentary and associated discussion would merit wider and longer exposure. Will there be any ability to see this film after the Cinema Village sessions this weekend ? Many will be out of town, including our friends and us. Thank you to Daniel Schulman for his wife's story.
