"Grace": How Film Impacts Healthcare--A Case Study

Images of patients and healthcare providers abound in a multitude of visual art forms. We will explore the influence of documentary films on health and healthcare. We will view “Grace” a new short documentary film exploring one woman’s unique approach to recovery from breast cancer treatment. We will then hear from the film’s director, Rachel Pikelny (a survivor herself), the main subject, Grace Lombardo, and documentary veteran Gordon Quinn (of Kartemquin Films) about how this and other documentary films impact healthcare.

Rachel Pikelny
Award-winning filmmaker, Director of Production at Siskel/Jacobs Productions, and an Impact Partners Producing Fellow. She is also a breast cancer survivor.

Grace Lombardo
A 37-year-old mother, birth doula, and breast cancer survivor. She began a blog, #grancerblog, soon after diagnosis to document her treatment.

Gordon Quinn
Founder and Artistic Director of Kartemquin Films. For 50 plus years, he has created films that investigate and critique society by documenting the lives of real people.
