A Modicum of Joy
A Modicum Of Joy is a modern film that explores the intersection of art and medicine in the face of a serious illness. The documentary follows Nashville photographer Fred Dusel III as he considers the role of palliative care in managing his own disease: metastatic lung cancer. Fred reminds us that wisdom can be found between the hollows of hope, ritual and the arts. The film offers a novel platform for outreach and education.
