65 Redroses

65RedRoses is a 2009 documentary film about Eva Markvoort, a young woman from New Westminster, British Columbia, who suffered from cystic fibrosis. The film follows Markvoort as she lives her life undaunted by her disease, waiting for a lung transplant while blogging about her experiences.

When Lyall and Mukerji began shooting, Markvoorts lungs were so clogged doctors said that without a transplant, she would not live to 2009. She was getting ready to visit a pumpkin patch the week before Halloween in 2007, when her pager went off, a signal to call the hospital transplant center. A pair of lungs was available for transplant. This sequence, emotional for both Markvoort and the filmmakers, was instrumental in attracting the attention and backing of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.65Redroses premiered at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival and won three awards at the Vancouver International Film Festival, including most popular Canadian film and documentary. It debuted on television on CBCs The Passionate Eye series and was acquired by the Public Broadcasting Service for international distribution. ........
