ABOUT THE FILM

Lady Parts is a dramedy-fantasy that tackles the complicated ridiculousness that cancer paints over everything. Sometimes simple questions don't have simple answers.

Actress Devin Sidell will be playing Danielle

Devin Sidell, who is a BRCA1 positive previvor will be playing the role of Danielle. In December 2017, Sidell opted to undergo a preventative double-mastectomy. Sidell has not undergone reconstructive surgery specifically to play the role of Danielle realistically. She will openly exhibit her scars and expanders so that the audience can understand the difficult decisions surrounding preventative mastectomy and the aftermath of surgery. Sidell’s mother is an ovarian cancer and breast cancer survivor. Sidell's aunt died of ovarian cancer. Sidell's sister is a breast cancer survivor. This film is based on Devin Sidell's story and her own lady parts.
