dc.description.abstractFilmmaker Su Friedrich offers a creative, and very personal, documentary that explores her own experiences as a patient through her experiences with a variety of illness and her encounters with a variety of medical professionals. In addition, this program explores issues related to the impact of illness on relationships and sexuality, and Ms. Friedrich's growing thoughts about aging and mortality. The film incorporates traditional medicine and alternative therapies and preventive methods, e.g., acupuncture, Chinese herbs, T'ai Chi, and gardening. See also, the film annotation written by Felice Aull in the New York University Literature, Arts, and Medicine Database at db/webdocs/webfilms/odd.of.recovery147-film-.html. "Faced with her sixth surgery and an ongoing hormone imbalance, the filmmaker turns the camera on a difficult patient - herself - an analyses the chances for a happier, healthier life." [description taken from cassette case] Ms. Friedrich wrote the script and provided direction, cinematography, editing, and sound editing. Additional cinematography was provided by Joel Schlemowitz and music by Kurt Hoffman. The program was funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York Foundation of the Arts, and Charette Communications. The program is available in 16mm and VHS.en
