RARE screened in San Francisco
The documentary RARE was screened at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco on Nov. 1st. About 75 people attended the event. After the screening, a panel answered questions for the audience. Heather Kirkwood, Vice President of the HPS Network and one of the stories featured in the film, was on the panel. The film’s producers, Maren Grainger-Monsen and Nicole Newnham, were also on the panel and answered questions about why they chose the HPS story, and why they made certain filmmaking decisions. Dr. Holbrook Kohrt, a doctor and rare cancer researcher, was also on the panel to talk about the film from a researcher’s point of view. He also had great insights as a patient and shared some about his life with hemophilia.
