The Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to Huntington’s disease (HD) family support and research, has announced that it is partnering with WeHaveAFace.org Inc. to increase access to James Valvano’s independently-produced film The Huntington’s Disease Project: Removing the Mask. HDSA will receive a limited number of Blu-Rays and DVDs of the film to lend to HDSA support groups on a first-come, first-served basis.
Released in 2015 and recognized globally at film festivals, the two-hour documentary is a raw, first-hand account of family experiences with many of the most challenging aspects of Huntington’s disease. Due to the adult themes and sensitive topics of the film, HDSA is requiring that an HD-experienced social worker or mental health professional be present during the screening and to facilitate a post-screening discussion session.
