The next CTSI Seminar will feature a screening of the documentary RARE.This new feature documentary follows an extraordinary mother in a race against time, as she unites a group of isolated people from around the world in a quest to treat her daughter's rare genetic disease. Filmed with intimate access over three years, as the clock ticks and the stakes get higher, RARE follows Donna and her advocacy group as they travel to Puerto Rico and throughout the U.S. in a race to fill a drug trial they hope could prolong her daughter's life.
