Amazones: L’Art de Revivre (Amazons: The Art of Coming Alive Again)

How to live after cancer? With a group of Amazon women in Martinique, Alexandra is conducting a double reconstruction, physical and moral. She alternates surgical operations and the realization of portraits of Amazona made by photographic artists. Art becomes a kind of therapy and a way of breaking taboos.
