States of Grace, Mark Lipman, Filmmaker
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.
