Illness Magnified is an experimental documentary about the experience, language, and spaces of illness from the perspective of both patients and physicians. It contrasts personal and institutional conceptions of illness and the body by exploring how they are visualized, documented, and described.

Using voice-over interviews, medical imagery, and handmade recreations of the internal body, the film addresses the complexity of these representations and unveils the often unacknowledged lived experience of the patient as well as the emotional experience of the physician.
