Over the weekend, Chicago Tribune Magazine ran a very good article about local filmmaker Joanna Rudnick and her documentary film on genetic testing and heritable breast cancer, "In the Family." The film premiered on PBS's Point of View on Oct 1. More information about the film and the filmmaker can be found on their website, inthefamilyfilm.com.
If you missed it on television, you can watch the film in its entirety on the web thorough Oct 31, 2008 at thePoint of View website. It really is a courageous and moving film.
