Gerry Rogers, filmmaker, politician, and breast cancer survivor, began filming her experience with breast cancer, from the moment her hair started falling out from chemotherapy, creating the Gemini-award winning film “My Left Breast.”
Gerry speaks with humour and kindness to audiences that have gone through, or are going through similar ordeals, who are helping loved ones fight their battles, and even those who have been lucky enough not to be touched by cancer.
Rogers was elected to the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly in the 2011 provincial election, representing the district of St. John’s Centre as a member of the Newfoundland and Labrador New Democratic Party.
Gerry is an internationally acclaimed documentary filmmaker who loves making movies! She has over 20 films to her credit and as many awards. Her film My Left Breast, an intimate, starkly honest and surprisingly humorous portrayal of her struggle with breast cancer has won over 20 international awards including 2 Geminis and Gold at Hot Docs.
