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.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
