Win(d) Over Cancer

Synopsis

Last summer the world was closed, but our waters were open.

This crew took the opportunity to make a difference - More Kids On Sailboats, a 501(c)(3) organization is proud to present our first short film - WIN(D) OVER CANCER

"You don't want to compare something you love to something you hate. You learn on a boat that goals change, unexpected things happen and you need to have a change of plans. Same thing with cancer."

Follow our crew of kids as they compete in an offshore sailboat race to raise awareness & money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A race against all adults, professionals, and mother nature herself.


Our Review

In most films based on Cancer, Cancer by itself becomes the entire plot line. Andrew Jowett’s Win(d) over Cancer is definitely a different style of film from the typical. The analogy between the workings of nature and those of cancer is so very meaningful. It’s an interesting portrayal of how one can maneuvers & navigate the challenges, not only of cancer but for that matter everything if life.

There is a good amount of cheer factor at the end to see the team YETI win. Certainly a good one if you want no cry but more happiness.

I thought it was deep and moving, but too short. Wish the film had a couple of more minutes portraying the challenges while at sail and their learning’s.

Seriously, organizations like ‘More Kids on Sail’, need to exist all around the world benefitting larger community. Shout out to their support to stay involved with the young Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
