Gordon heads to Scottsdale, AZ

This weekend Kartemquin's Gordon Quinn will travel to Scottsdale, Arizona to speak to an audience of oncologists about In the Family. The conference, organized annually by the journal Community Oncology, will deal with issues of quality care for cancer patients. Leading a panel entitled, "Living with the Specter of Cancer," Gordon will use clips from In the Family to help clinical oncologists understand the concept of "pre-survivorship" and survivorship more deeply, as well as talk about ways they can be more sensitive to it in their medical practice.


In the Family continues on the road

Director Joanna Rudnick has been across the country this week promoting In the Family and speaking at community screenings. From Philadelphia to Palo Alto, the film has been reaching a broad range of audiences. Two screenings for Medical and Law students marked the past two weeks in November. Dr. Maren Grainger-Monsen and the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics presented a screening and Director Joanna Rudnick had a wonderful time speaking with the intelligent students from the Genetic Counseling and Bioethics and Film Programs at Stanford.


In the Family in action

Kartemquin's Joanna Rudnick will travel to Philadelphia on Wednesday to present at the American Society of Human Genetics Annual Conference. Joanna will be speaking on the process of making a documentary film from concept to public education campaign and showing clips from In the Family.

Also, the film is up for several awards in the Midwest Independent Film Festival's "Best of Fest" awards. VOTE NOW!
