“States of Grace” Hits Bay Area Theaters This January
The new documentary States of Grace hits Bay Area theaters to coincide with the installation of a movable median barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge in early January. Dr. Grace Dammann’s life was forever changed when a driver crashed head on into her car during a routine commute across the bridge in 2008.
After spending more than a year in rehabilitation hospitals, the film follows Grace as she returns home to Green Gulch Farm Zen Center in Marin, where she lives with her partner Fu Schroeder and their adopted teenage daughter Sabrina. Family dynamics are turned upside down as each of them must negotiate new roles and responsibilities. Through intimate verité footage and interviews with Grace’s doctors, family, and friends, States of Grace paints an inspiring portrait of trust and devotion as it delicately documents the pain and power of one woman’s fight to reinvent herself.
Honored with audience awards at the Mill Valley, Seattle Lesbian & Gay, and Napa Valley film festivals this fall, viewers have cheered States of Grace as “a moving, complex, and powerful journey” and “a knockout filled with beauty, wit, and compassion.”
