A documentary film by Miguel Silveira, Scott F Busch, and Ehsan Ghoreishi.
In 2006, at the age of 25, Rebecca Babcock was diagnosed with genetic colon cancer. She began blogging as a way to come to terms with her 'new normal'. Out of those blog entries emerged a picture of her struggle. She fought countless battles with her disease, her treatments, surgery, debt, loneliness, isolation, hope and despair. Writing was her only outlet. Using her life as a canvas, her poetry turned her pain into a brutally honest and sometimes harsh look at the realities of having cancer. Her words didn't cure her cancer but they clearly provide its readers with a completely new look on life.
This is not another film about a cancer patient who struggles with the disease and at the end perishes or wins the battle. The situation is different. Becca’s approach to her documentation process is unique and so is her insight.
I Am a Visitor in Your World features no interviews. The intention of the film is to be in contact with a different kind of perception. We witness Becca’s struggle with the disease first hand, raw. We follow her while she fights against a medical system, which penalizes the already penalized patients. We look at the love between her and her mother. In a way, cancer itself seems to play a secondary role. The film is as much about all of us as it is about Becca. What we see is universal … It is a film about love. Visitor is a film about someone using art to renew humanity.
