“When I first met Dr. Valentin Fuster, I thought cardiovascular disease was a rich nation’s illness, but I soon found out it was the leading cause of death across the globe,” said Froemke. “Dr. Fuster’s mission to stem the tide of this debilitating epidemic inspired me to make The Resilient Heart with the hope to bring his important story to a wide audience.”

The film, made with generous support from Mt. Sinai Health System, centers on the work of Dr. Valentin Fuster, a world-renowned cardiovascular scientist and Physician-in-Chief at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Through his research and travels, Dr. Fuster discovers that the real answer to fighting chronic disease lies in early education. The Resilient Heart follows Dr. Fuster as he travels to Eldoret (Kenya), Bogota, Grenada, Madrid and Harlem, where he encounters the profound impacts of coordinated global health initiatives, proactive public policy, and the passion of people to better the health and well-being of populations, no matter the circumstances.

The film was directed by Oscar nominee and Grammy winner Susan Froemke, a non-fiction filmmaker with over 30 documentaries to her credit, including the iconic Grey Gardens (1976), the Academy Award nominated Lalee’s Kin (2001), Conversations With The Rolling Stones (1994), and Escape Fire: The Fight To Rescue American Healthcare which premiered at Sundance in 2013.
The Resilient Heart will premiere Spring 2017.
