METAXA listening to time
” Living with cancer. Α devastating experience of self-knowledge. A future no longer entirely your own. Α solitary place between life and death.. Gaze sharp and senses attuned, the cancer sufferer moves between inwardness, self-awareness, acute sensitivity and paranoia.” Ioanna Karystiani, author
The documentary focuses on doctors and staff at the METAXAS Cancer Hospital who themselves have cancer. It observes this special group of patients as they continue to work at the hospital.
It traces their journey from the shock of learning they have cancer to the experience of ‘learning to listen to time’. Along the way, their illness will change from a threat of death to a teacher of life, adding years to their lives but also adding Life to their years.
