UK Premiere of the documentary feature film ‘Do You Really Want to Know?’, from Academy Award® winning director John Zaritsky.

The film follows three families who have been confronted with the decision of whether or not to be tested for Huntington’s Disease (HD) – an inherited degenerative neurological illness that strikes in adult life and slowly destroys the mind and the body in what experts say is one of the worst ways to die. Not only is there no cure, there is no treatment to slow down the ravages of the disease. ‘Do You Really Want to Know?’ has won many awards at major film festivals.

The screening is at 33 Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG. Doors open at 6:30pm; the movie begins at 7pm. Refreshments will be provided. Suggested donation £10 in aid of the HD Association is requested. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
