Renowned documentary director David Gelb, who gained critical acclaim with his film Jiro Dreams of Sushi, has directed a series of documentary shorts with the theme “Science Saves” for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s (MSK) ongoing “More Science. Less Fear.”  campaign. “Science Saves” showcases compelling stories of three patients — and the important things in each of their lives that were saved because they chose to be treated at MSK. The three 4-minute films (“Suzanne”, “Valerie,” and “Danny”) at the core of the new campaign all end with the same line: “Science saves more than lives.”   The new work demonstrates how the institution’s singular focus on cancer research, treatment, and care impacts and guides patients at each point in their journey, and how this approach helps MSK treat the whole person — not just the disease.
