Our very own Professor Barrie Kitto from the Molecular Biosciences department was recently featured in a documentary about his former advisee and Nobel laureate, Jim Allison. The documentary, titled “Jim Allison: Breakthrough” is the true story of a “warm-hearted, stubborn man’s visionary quest to find a cure for cancer.” The film traces the remarkable life of Jim from his early days, and guides us to how he got where he is now. In the words of Dr. Kitto: “I had a chance to see the premiere at SXSW and it is a fine film (even though I have a very small part in it). It has already received a slew of positive reviews from major critics.”
If you haven’t gotten a chance to see it yet, grab a friend and go to the Regal Theater at Great Hills either today or tomorrow. For the trailer, showtimes and tickets, visit Regal Theaters. Happy viewing!
