A FILM BY STEVEN BERNSTEIN

  Ozymandias Productions presents A Unified Film's production in Asscoication with  Rix Pix, Media House Capital, Produced by: Steven Bernstein, Clark Peterson, Keith Kjarval. Executive Producers: Johnathan Brownlee, Sahil Chanana, Nolan McDonald, Manhad Nerula, Herman Narula, Aaron Gilbert. Producers: Stuart Ross, Mary Vernieu.

 

Based on the real lives of two remarkable women separated by thousands of miles, by circumstance, background and education, and yet, as told in the film, their two lives gradually intertwine until a final, singular and life changing reckoning.
 
It is the story of Anne Parker(Samantha Morton), a sharp witted, funny and irrepressible young woman who watches her mother, then sister, fall victim to breast cancer. When, later, she herself is diagnosed with the disease, she is resolved to fight back against immeasurable odds.

The film is also the story of Mary-Claire King(Helen Hunt), the geneticist whose discovery of the BRCA1 gene and its link to breast cancer foreverchanged the understanding of human disease. Hers is considered one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century.



There will be a post-film Q&A with director, Steven Bernstein and Annie Parker, hosted by Jack Garner.


 

VIP Admission: includes wine and hors d’oeuvres reception beginning at 5:30, a reserved seat in the VIP section of the theatre and a photo with Steve and Annie.
