JIM ALLISON: BREAKTHROUGH opening in SF & Berkeley
Every few years a film comes out that is more than a film and that deserves our utmost attention. JIM ALLISON: BREAKTHROUGH is such a film, and it opens in SF & Berkeley on 10/4 at the Landmark Clay Theatre and Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley, and will begin screening on November 15th until November 29th at the BAMPFA in Berkeley.
It is the astounding true story of one warm-hearted, stubborn, Nobel Prize winning scientist and his visionary quest to find a cure for cancer. The drugs that followed the pioneering path he blazed have now treated nearly a million patients, saving the lives of hundreds of thousands—a deeply satisfying cause for celebration.
Heartwarming and inspiring, JIM ALLISON: BREAKTHROUGH celebrates a true iconoclast and highlights how courage, passion, determination and a talent for collaboration can change the world and inspire hope against huge odds.
