BRCA previvor

This short Canadian documentary tells the story of Sarah and her decision to undergo elective surgery (a preventative double mastectomy) for a BRCA mutation that puts her at high risk for breast cancer.

Might a genetic mutation be the very thing that allows this nice Jewish butch lesbian to be fully seen at last? Meet Sarah, 57. Lesbian? For sure. Jewish? Yes and no. Mother? In all but one sense. Trans? No, just often mistaken as such. Breast cancer survivor? Well, that’s the plan, the survival bit, but without the cancer or the breasts. Not Quite That is an intimate and insightful exploration of how we are seen, how we see ourselves, and why it matters. (Website description)
