In the Family

Joanna Rudnick

In the Family, a film by Joanna Rudnick produced by Kartemquin Films, takes an intensely personal look at what follows the results of a predictive genetic test. At age 27, Joanna confronted a strong family history of breast and ovarian cancers by getting tested for the “breast cancer genes.” Learning she has a mutation that brings a drastically increased risk, she now faces an impossible decision: would you sacrifice your breasts, your ovaries, your fertility, to possibly save your life?

IN THE FAMILY was presented at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on June 3, 2008, earning nominations for multiple Best of the Midwest Awards, including Best Feature Film.
