Not As I Pictured
is an autobiographical 54-minute film following Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist John Kaplan’s unexpected cancer journey. As stated on NotAsIPictured.org
, the immediate goal is to give away thousands of free copies to patients with cancer of all types, survivors, and those who love them.
An educational guide featuring information from Cancer.Net, in booklet form, accompanies the film to help viewers and support groups use the project to continue their own focus on a positive attitude toward diagnosis, treatment, and the joy of recovery.
Although the topic is serious, Not As I Pictured is upbeat, very positive, and ends with John’s remission and return to health.
