The film Not Approved For Cancer Treatment, written and directed by Michael Thomas Cain and produced by Forgotten Artist Productions, is screening at the 2023 Austin Revolution Film Festival.

This slightly absurd movie is nominated for 4 awards at the festival and follows an elderly man, with his wife of 50 years, who finds out from his doctor that he has cancer.

A new treatment has been discovered that cures all cancers, but the FDA will not approve it for cancer treatment, which means Medicare will not pay for it.

The couple could pay out of pocket, but they cannot afford to, forcing them to choose a more common treatment that may or may not work.
