Burzynski (2010)

Burzynski Plot

Burzynski is the compelling story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist who has discovered the genetic mechanism to cure most human cancers. This timely, eye-opening documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey that both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons - resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.

Directed by Eric Merola, Burzynski details the heroic plight of the doctor who faced relentless governmental harassment in order to bring his life-saving treatment to the world. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film that chose Dr. Burzynski’s treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of their original medical records to support their full recovery from prior terminal cancer diagnoses. This whistle-blowing film was an Official Selection in the Byron Beach International Film Festival (Australia), San Luis Obispo International Film Festival (CA), Garden State Film Festival (NJ), Palm Beach Film Festival (FL), and Newport Beach Film Festival (CA), where it won the Humanitarian Vision Award.
