Now Available for Streaming: In the Family

by |

POV is happy to announce that In the Family (POV 2008) is back for streaming for a limited time, from April 15, 2013 to May 15, 2013, as the Supreme Court begins to hear a case on gene patents.

Yesterday, filmmaker Joanna Rudnick updated POV on living with the “breast cancer gene,” and her thoughts on the upcoming case. Read the update »

How much would you sacrifice to survive? When Chicago filmmaker Joanna Rudnick tested positive for the “breast cancer gene” at age 27, she knew the information could save her life. And she knew she was not only confronting mortality at an early age, but also was going to have to make heart-wrenching decisions about the life that lay ahead of her. Should she take the irreversible preventive step of having her breasts and ovaries removed or risk developing cancer? What would happen to her romantic life, her hopes for a family? In the Family documents Rudnick’s efforts to reach out to other women while facing her deepest fears.
