JOHNNY PHYSICAL LIVES

Joshua Neuman

Johnny Physical Lives combines archival material I shot of my brother Jonathan while he was battling cancer with animation to “physically” bring to life his inner world. Through animation, I will communicate how Jonathan experienced cancer through the eyes of a rock star. Of course, in the un-animated universe, nothing about cancer feels very rock n’ roll. In the U.S. alone, more than 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with the disease each year. While overall survival rates have improved during the past 25 years, for those between the ages of 15 and 29, survival rates have worsened. In addition, young adults with cancer face their own distinct set of emotional challenges, finding themselves utterly dependent at a time in their lives when they’re supposed to be asserting their independence.
