Please join us for the first showing in NYC of this award-winning documentary since its 2011 premiere; shown for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October). The LuLu Sessions is a raw, intimate yet surprisingly humorous story about the filmmaker Ms. S. Casper Wong (Columbia, NYU Law, Tisch Film) showing up for her best friend and ex-GF, Dr. Louise Nutter ("LuLu")-world-class cancer researcher, who started college when she was 15, whizzed through grad school and got her Ph.D in biochem in 3.5 years- who finds out she is dying of breast cancer herself at 42. Together they test the limits of their bond while taking on life's ultimate adventure in this moving film about two women and life.
We may also go for drinks afterwards, location TBA (website, Facebook and at the event).
Co-sponsored by Yale GALA, FFR/Princeton BTGALA, the Breast Cancer Initiative of the LGBT Community Center of NYC, the NY Institute of Technology and Asian Cinevision (list in formation).
