37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024

Until 20

This touching documentary from Emmy Award–winning producers chronicles young James Ragan’s fight to live after a terminal diagnosis of osteosarcoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer. Even in the face of multiple surgeries and experimental treatments, James commits to getting the very most from his tragically short life, working with his family to advocate for childhood cancer research, and leaving a legacy he hopes will far outlast his 20 years. Discussion with filmmakers Geraldine Moriba-Meadows and Jamila Paksima, and Dr. Kimberly Dunsmore (U.Va.)
