Celebrate the kick-off of the 2019 Northern Nevada Dragon Boat Festival with a free screening of Awaken the Dragon.

Beyond survival, an ancient Chinese sport catapults an unlikely crew of cancer survivors into a new way of being. Redefining the word 'sick' and re-framing the meaning of their diagnosis, these fractured individuals transform into a single force of power and beauty.

14.5 million people in the United States can call themselves cancer survivors. However, as many discover, cancer and its treatment creates challenges beyond mere survival. This award-winning documentary examines how one small group of cancer survivors is facing these challenges with the courage and ferocity of an immortal creature.

Wrapped in a sport that is a feast for the senses, this film of nail-biting competition and intimate revelations challenges traditional medical thinking; revealing a path to wellness that holds hope for all survivors. Awaken the Dragon is a moving and inspiring ride that leaves viewers wondering if they too have the power to awaken the dragon within.
