Product Notes

When Namrata Singh Gujral lost two aunts to breast cancer, the young Indo-American actress realized that she might be at high risk. But in 2008 Gujral got the phone call that every woman dreads: You have breast cancer. Furious with the toll that cancer takes around the world, and terrified for herself and her nine year old daughter, Gujral decided to turn her harrowing journey into a positive outcome. She launched the film 1 a Minute while going through her third chemotherapy treatment, when a support group survivor remarked on how celebrities led charmed lives, while others got the hard road. Narrated by Kelly McGillis (Top Gun), "1 a Minute" is an unprecedented push by global celebrity women to help raise funds for a cure, promote awareness and prevention as well as support survivors of women's cancers. The film follows a woman's journey through cancer with a focus on breast cancer, the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women worldwide. At each stage of her journey, our stars, who are survivors or affected closely by cancer, jump in and recount their experiences. The film is a hybrid between narrative structure and documentary style with interweaves throughout the picture, with stories of "Hope, Courage and Survival"! the film stars Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Jaclyn Smith (Charlie's Angels), Namrata Singh Gujral (Americanizing Shelley), Melissa Etheridge (An Inconvenient Truth), Diahann Carroll (Claudine), Lisa Ray (Water), Barbara Mori (Kites), Mumtaz (Hare Rama Hare Krishna), brothers Billy Baldwin (Backdraft) and Danny Baldwin (VAMPIRE$), Jasmine Cooper (whose mothers are survivors) and Priya Dutt, whose mother, the famous Bollywood star Nargis Dutt (Mother India), died of cancer. The doc also covers interviews with top Western Oncologists such as Dr. Dennis Slamon (Research led to Herceptin), top Eastern medicine practitioners such as Dr. Deepak Chopra as well as experts like Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker (WHO).
