First look at "1 A Minute" - new docu-drama featuring Olivia

Breast cancer affects women and families all over the world, from celebrities to maybe your next-door neighbor. In fact, the disease takes the life of one woman every 69 seconds, an astonishing stat that leads to a mortality rate of 465,000 deaths per year. But there is optimism and hope to be found as awareness grows, and those ideas are celebrated in the docudrama 1 a Minute, directed by Indo-American actress — and breast cancer survivor — Namrata Singh Gujral. Narrated by Kelly McGillis, the film chronicles Gujral’s own life as she is diagnosed and treated for breast cancer, as well as interspersing personal tales from famous survivors such as Melissa Etheridge, Olivia Newton-John, Jaclyn Smith and Diahann Carroll, Susan G. Komen for the Cure founder Nancy G. Brinker, Dr. Deepak Chopra, and William and Daniel Baldwin, whose mom Carol M. Baldwin is a breast cancer survivor and started a family research fund for the disease. On Oct. 6, more than 525 theaters around the country will simulcast a live panel discussion that features Gujral, Etheridge, and Newton-John among others, followed by a world premiere showing of the film. Donations from the event will support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Tickets are on sale starting today for the event, so go to the movie’s website for more info and check out this exclusive trailer for 1 a Minute.
