Description
"Cancer is built into us," wrote the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies. "The genes that unmoor normal cell division are not foreign to our bodies but rather mutated, distorted versions of the very genes that allow us to grow, to adapt, to recover, to repair—to live." This boxed set contains the complete three-part, six-hour PBS series from Emmy Award–winning documentarian Ken Burns, based on Siddhartha Mukherjee's book. It is a gripping "biography" of cancer as a disease, a chronicle of the medical and social war on cancer, and the human stories of individual patients, doctors, and researchers who are fighting that war. Directed by Barak Goodman, the film is produced by Burns, who is also the senior creative consultant, and written by Goodman, Burns, David Blistein, and Geoffrey Ward.
