Kim Suozzi began her final year of college not knowing that she would be dead within a year. After suffering a seizure and being rushed into brain surgery, she learned that she had been struck with the most devastating form of brain cancer, Glioblastoma. As a Neuroscience major, she had already been intrigued by the practice of cryonics. With an effective expiration date on her young life, she set out on a desperate attempt raise the $80,000 she would need in order to have her head and brain frozen or ‘cryopreserved’ for a future chance at life. Dying to Be Frozen follows her journey through interviews with her friends, family and her own video fundraising appeals on social media. Along the way we recreate her research to set-up interviews with the most controversial figures in cryonics, it’s scientific opponents and to retell events that have shaped the publics views on the practice. The film culminates in Kim’s final on camera interview in hospice care.
