FACES OF LAFORA, THE - LICA LAFORE
(2017 Col 88') Documentary


The documentary is a film adaptation of a fight for finding a cure for one of the most serious childhood diseases in the world, Lafora disease. This most severe and rarest form of human epilepsy takes lives of children all around the world. Although it has been more than a century since the disease was first described, pharmaceutical companies and public funds were not interested enough in funding the research, because this is a rare disease. All the burden, to fund the research that will help to find a cure for this disease, is on Lafora associations and families around the world whose children are condemned to a death sentence. For each of them, time is running out. One family decided not to stop until Lafora is erased from the face of the Earth. Fighting against much stronger enemy, the family Gajic from Bosnia and Herzegovina makes the impossible, possible in order to save the lives of their children. On the other side of the world, in Canada, professor Minassian and his team of researchers are trying to find a cure for this deadly disease for more than a decade. Although wounded in the cruellest way you can imagine, the family Gajic, with incredible persistence and superhuman efforts, raise money to find a cure for this disease, thus becoming one of the world's largest donors. The efforts of a family to set the planet in motion and the enthusiasm of the world's leading scientists, will be merged into the incredible power of the human spirit, which push the boundaries in the world of science and shows that nothing is impossible. From an Academy Award Nominated Director Atom Egoyan ”This film takes us on a journey which is unique, showing a face of humanity and hope which is precious and rare”
