In 2011, soon after he moved to Ljubljana, Ulay was diagnosed with cancer. Framed by his battle with the disease this documentary follows Ulay throughout November 2011 – 2012, from his chemotherapy treatment in Ljubljana to journeys to Berlin for the premiere of Marina Abramovi?'s film, then to New York, and finally to Amsterdam. Project Cancer recounts Ulay’s career via interviews with those close to him, archival video, photographs, and reproductions of his more ephemeral work. Ulay treated his illness as the biggest and most important project of his life, hence the title of the film Project Cancer.
