The documentary Pink & Blue: Colors of Hereditary Cancer makes its worldwide theatrical premiere at Laemmle's Music Hall in Beverly Hills on October 2 - 8, coinciding with National Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancer Week and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Angelina Jolie put the term B-R-C-A and prophylactic (preventative) surgeries on the map with her initial op-ed piece in the New York Times back in 2013. Dr. Kristi Funk, M.D, co-founder of Pink Lotus Breast Center, and Angelina Jolie's surgeon, speaks passionately about the need for awareness and prevention. This film will define what carrying a BRCA mutation means
The documentary takes a profound look into the BRCA world examining what it is and how this gene mutation puts both women and men at risk for developing numerous cancers.
Director/producer Alan M. Blassberg says;
Producing reality is one thing, but living it is another," and "There is nothing more real than cancer."
Blassberg tells the story of how hereditary cancer has ripped his family apart and what he must face as a BRCA 2 positive male. The film highlights the message that men are equally as likely to carry a BRCA gene mutation and this lack of information is deadly.
The AMC Empire Theater is located at 234 W 42nd St, New York.
