Written & Directed by Annick Sickinghe & Sam van Zoest

Years after her recovery, artist Annick notices that her illness is still affecting her. She talks with fellow survivors of childhood cancer about the mental and physical consequences, and visualizes these in an artistic way.

In the documentary LATER, Annick Sickinghe and Sam van Zoest portray the physical and mental recovery process followed by childhood cancer. Annick speaks with seven people who experienced cancer as a child. The central question in LATER is: how does childhood cancer affect your later life? And how do former patients look back on their time of illness after 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 years? The intimate and personal interviews are interspersed with animations and poetic images that make the emotion of the story tangible.
