Kori Feener, Principled Uncertainty veteran, returns to discuss her newest documentary film project, Bea.
From the Kickstarter:
Bea is about a young girl with a disease so rare, no one else in the world has it. Bea Rienhoff was born with distinct physical differences and diagnosed at an early age with an "orphan disease." An orphan disease is defined as rare, often with unknown causes affecting a small percentage of the population.
Throughout her childhood, her father Hugh has devoted his time to discovering what her specific genetic variation is, being labeled a biological outlaw for his unprecedented approach to finding answers. As Bea starts to get older, more and more questions arise about what physical and emotional challenges she will face as she nears adulthood.
Kori's previous documentary, Hard Way Home, detailed her trip along the Appalachian Trail, as she trekked all the way from the wilds of Georgia to the forests of Maine.
You can find Bea the film online at the following places:
The Kickstarter ends on February 28, so be sure to support Kori and her ambitious project. So far, they are about 70% funded, so every little bit helps.
