Joanna Rudnick recently blogged for the Huffington Post about the recent case filing by the ACLU to challenge patents on breast cancer genes. Joanna shares her story of testing positive for the BRCA1 mutation in Kartemquin's documentary In the Family. The blog includes a clip of her interview with the founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Myriad, owner of the BRCA1&2 patents.
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.
