Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies

Premiered March 2015

A story of human ingenuity and perseverance but also of hubris and misperception.

Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies matches the epic scale of the disease, reshaping the way the public sees cancer and stripping away some of the fear and misunderstanding that has long surrounded it. The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance but also of hubris, paternalism and misperception.
