Alex Borstein, the two-time Emmy-Award winning actress best known for her work on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Family Guy,” has joined the producing team of the new documentary Bombardier Blood, which screens in New York City for the first time on April 14th in recognition of World Hemophilia Day and to raise funds for the charity Save One Life.
Alex and her daughter have a mild form of hemophilia, which also affects other members of her family. She is an advocate for the hemophilia community and women with bleeding disorders, regularly speaking to patient groups and giving interviews about her personal experience living with a bleeding disorder. Bombardier Blood follows mountaineer Chris Bombardier on a historic mission to become the first person with hemophilia to climb the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each continent, including the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest. The intimate, unflinching film also chronicles Chris’s quest to bring aid and fundraise for people with hemophilia where access to life-saving treatment is scarce and the disease is often deadly.
The New York City Hemophilia Chapter will host the April 14th screening, which takes place at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square at 2:00pm (doors open at 1:30). Tickets are required and free, though a suggested donation to Save One Life is requested. Entry includes access to the screening as well as to a meet-and-greet reception and silent auction that follows. All proceeds will benefit Save One Life.
