Bernadette captures the life of Bernadette Scarduzio and her challenges and triumphs living with CMT. CMT is the number one hereditary neuropathy in the world, affecting 1 in 2,500 people. CMT is a progressive debilitating neurological condition that is grossly misdiagnosed and mismanaged.
On Wednesday, January 29th, jewelry designer jaKe & anna will be sponsoring the NYC premiere of BERNADETTE at the old time soho Angelika Film Center in Manhattan. 50% of sales from this viewing will go to the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation (HNF).
Filmed over four years, Bernadette documents the physical decline of a young woman in her prime who goes from engaging in sports to depending on a scooter and assistance with the daily necessities of life. The film captures the day to day struggles of living with CMT, but at the same time there is an admiration for Bernadette’s openness and drive to share her story and help others.
