Jeannie Piekos, writer, poet, and arts activist, wrote her way through her cancer journey in her award winning memoir, Buoyancy. The film Buoyancy: Living Between Dualities invites us to be witness to Jeannie’s poetic navigation through anguish and hope, loneliness and love, vulnerability and determination.

Buoyancy goes behind the veil to share one woman’s very personal, innermost journey exploring life, sexuality, disease, motherhood and mortality. Director, Will Hommeyer uses his camera to witness the passage as Jeannie stumbles down the rabbit hole of cancer treatment. The film draws on universal themes of fear, loss and love within Jeannie's experience and allows the audience to see themselves in her place; to walk beside her on her journey.

Proceeds from this event benefit Pathways, A Healing Center.

Pathways is a Minneapolis nonprofit that provides no-cost healing services for people with life-threatening or chronic physical illness.
