This 2012 documentary profiles renowned graffiti artist Tempt One, who loses his creative voice after sustaining amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. In 2009, Mick Ebeling and his Not Impossible Foundation brought a motley crew of international hackers and artists to Los Angeles to invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that allows Tempt to once again create art, using the only part of his body that still moves: his eyes. After months of harrowing trial and error, the EyeWriter was born and Tempt was once again able to exercise his creative muscle. Immediately following the screening, a panel of experts will discuss the film.
