Their grace and inner strength demonstrate to us what we can survive, if tested. The evening also included a patron dinner and talk back presentation featuring the Ms. Burdick, several of the film’s featured subjects, and renown journalist and author Eleanor Clift. The event drew 600 attendees to the Berman Center for the Performing Arts on March 12, 2013.
