FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

After learning she had a genetic mutation that causes dilated cardiomyopathy, Filmmaker Dana Weidman set out to Colorado to interview the doctor who identified the missing base pairs in her chromosome.

In Nobody’s Perfect, Weidman explains how her family participated in research for twenty years and presents their experiences with genetic counseling. Although the precise genetic disease is extremely rare, the implications of this discovery could lead to a gene therapy that could prevent heart failure and heart transplantation.
