"AN INSPIRING JOURNEY” ~ ERIC KHOO | director



I Hugged The Berlin Patient is an acclaimed docu-adventure-comedy about spirited cancer survivor Edgar Tang‘s spontaneous quest across continents to find and hug Timothy Ray Brown aka ‘The Berlin Patient' – the first man in the world cured of HIV.




“SINGULAR & POWERFUL” ~ IVAN HENG | theatre veteran


Without any knowledge of German, Edgar transports himself into the medical marvel's favourite city Berlin, and through perseverance and on-the-go decisions, serendipitously gets closer to uncovering Brown's ordeal and the radical treatment that cured him of both HIV and leukemia in 2007. Tapping on his own recovery from Stage III Hodgkin's Lymphoma that same year, Edgar fleshes out the next illogical plan to travel farther, just to hug the stranger.
