Original Title: Un ritratto di Cesare Maltoni

(Italy, 2018)

Cesare Maltoni was one of Italy and the world’s most important cancer research pioneers, specialising in the research of environmental cancers and tumor prevention, and creating the first hospice in Italy. However, there was more than one side to this extraordinary scientist, Maltoni was also a political man, battling for civil rights, a staunch communist and gay. This documentary constructs the image of Maltoni, the average man’s hero, a pioneer not just of science but of modern day thinking.
