This year, on Monday, October 14, 2013, UCLA Center for East-West Medicine and Susan G. Komen Foundation honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month through hosting a screening of a deeply personal and touching documentary, The Lulu Sessions*. S. Casper Wong, Director and Filmmaker, shares a powerful, stark testimonial about the tenacity of love and our capacity for pushing past limits in the face of impending mortality due to metastatic breast cancer. There will be a panel discussion following the screening—the focus being breast cancer is more than a medical condition. The progression of breast cancer affects not only the patient but everyone around them.

*The Lulu Sessions is a powerful, stark testimonial about the tenacity of love and our capacity for pushing past limits—in love, friendship, forgiveness and life itself, in the face of impending mortality. This film is one of the first personal documentaries seen through the lens of a Chinese American, queer woman. Yet, in its heart, “Lulu” binds audiences—straight or gay, Asian or not, men or women, young or old—to the most universal of stories, that of love and death. Reflective, intensely honest, and surprisingly humorous, this unforgettable documentary makes life’s last journey accessible in ways rarely seen before on screen.
