States of Grace intimately captures the transformation of
a revered physician, pioneering AIDS specialist Dr. Grace Dammann, and her
family in the wake of a life-changing accident. After seven weeks in a coma and
a dozen surgeries, Grace miraculously awakened with her cognitive abilities
intact, though her body was left shattered. The film follows her return home to
the Buddhist community where she and her partner Nancy “Fu” Schroeder
live with their teenage daughter Sabrina in this inspiring portrait of
devotion, trust, and resilience.
There will be a Q&A with director Mark Lipman following the screening.
