On Screen/In Person Film Series: States of Grace
Directed by Mark Lipman.
An intimate look at the profound transformation of a revered Buddhist physician and her family in the wake of a life-changing accident.
Dr. Grace Dammann was a prominent HIV/AIDS physician who was honored by the Dalai Lama for her extraordinary work during the height of the epidemic. In 2008, a routine commute across the Golden Gate Bridge turned tragic for Grace when another driver crashed head on into her car. Though she miraculously survived, she spent more than a year in rehabilitation hospitals. States of Grace follows her return home to the Buddhist community where she lives with her partner Nancy “Fu” Schroeder and their daughter Sabrina. With humor and candor, the film intimately captures their story as Grace struggles to discover new purpose in her radically altered life.
