By the time Tyler turned 10, he had lost his ability to walk, see, and hear. When he turned 12, scientists at University of Utah Health identified the mysterious illness hidden in Tyler’s DNA, a discovery that led to a life-changing treatment. Acclaimed directors Jeremiah Zagar (We the Animals) and Ross Kauffman (TIGERLAND) captured the story on film, which will premiere before the panel. They will be joined by Tyler’s mom and physician to discuss how the right combination of science, art, and genetics reveals everything about us.
