Liliana Komorowska

1/2


Having worked with Academy Award winning director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), Academy Award nominated director/producer Ridley Scott and Golden Globe award winning producer Tony Scott while also collaborating with Hollywood’s A-listers including Aidan Quinn, Donald Sutherland and Sir Ben Kingsley, actress and first-time director Liliana Komorowska tapped into her experiences with such highly-respected Hollywood legends to create this intimate portrait of the devastating realities of breast cancer. The full-length documentary details the complexities of all the various stages of the disease; following the patients through their spiritual, physical and emotional transformations as they bare their souls and their scars, all while striving to dismiss society’s general perception of feminine beauty and adapt to living with their mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength, grace and pride. Beauty and the Breast is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience, but it also proves that it’s possible to reach timeless wisdom in the face of adversity.
