Val Kilmer was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2015. His treatment included chemotherapy, radiation and a tracheotomy which altered his voice. In the trailer for his new documentary Val, he explores his career in Hollywood and how it has been affected by treatment and recovery. In some instances, his son Jack Kilmer narrates on his behalf. “I was recently diagnosed with throat cancer,” Jack says. “I’m still recovering, and it is difficult to talk and to be understood.”
While the film reveals candid moments from throughout his career shot with a personal video camera, it also provides an intimate glimpse into how his relationship with work has evolved following cancer treatment.
