Bradley Rappa, a lecturer in the Department of Cinema, Photography and Media Arts, will screen his documentary, Thicker Than Water, at the Syracuse International Film Festival on Friday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m.
The film is about Tony, an 11-year-old who “absolutely, positively” loves hockey, and is about to play his last game. He is also a hemophiliac. The frequent scratches and bruises that mark the childhoods of active kids seem harmless to the healthy, but these same small injuries can be debilitating or fatal to a hemophiliac. Undeterred by a family history of chronic illness and loss, Tony’s parents continue to support and encourage his ambitions. Thicker Than Water is a documentary about dealing with chronic illness, living life to the fullest, and playing your last game as well as you can.

This project received previous support from Office of the Provost and a James B. Pendleton grant. Crane will work on the film during her sabbatical leave this year.
