Based on a true story, the film follows the journey of Annie Parker (Morton) who learns she has breast cancer, the disease which she lost her mother and sister to. Geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) is a researching the still unidentified link between DNA and cancer. "Decoding Annie Parker" depicts the heartbreaking struggle of battling breast cancer and the scientific dedication that led to revolutionary 1990 breakthrough of the BRCA1 gene responsible for many breast and ovarian cancers.
"In its unsparing, clear-eyed depiction of the scourge of breast cancer on one remarkable woman's life and its role in helping another remarkable woman make a major scientific discovery, this film shows how stories of science and technology cut to the heart of our human ability to triumph over the most overwhelming odds," said Doron Weber, Vice President, Programs at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
HIFF will screen "Decoding Annie Parker" on Friday, October 11, followed by a panel discussion featuring director Steven Bernstein and special guest experts in the fields of genetics and cancer research.

Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
