You are invited to the only Sacramento screening of the remarkable independent film States of Grace, sponsored by Sacramento Dharma Center, Tuesday October 14th, 7:30 pm at the Century Downtown Plaza Theater. Grace Dammann and Mark Lippman, one of the filmmakers, are both scheduled to be present for an after-show Q & A.
This 75-minute film describes the challenging recovery of Dr. Grace Dammann, a resident of Green Gulch Farm Zen Center, following a devastating head-on collision on the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a deeply personal film that depicts the inner and outer struggle that results when a life is suddenly and radically changed. That this life is a woman living and practicing in a Buddhist residential community gives the film an added dimension: how does someone in a wheelchair enact her Bodhisattva vow to save all beings?
