The Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Center and filmmakers Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby will host the Cleveland premiere and panel discussion of the documentary I AM HUMAN on Tuesday, Jan. 30, at the Hanna Theater at Playhouse Square.
The evening starts with a red-carpet reception at 5 p.m. The documentary explores what it means to be human by following the incredible journeys of three people with implantable brain interfaces. Prominently featured in the film are Bill Kochevar, a Cleveland veteran, and the cutting-edge work of the Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Center at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center (UH).
A panel discussion moderated by Elise Hu, host of NPR’s Future You, with filmmakers Taryn Southern and Elena Gaby, and Cleveland FES Center researchers A Bolu Ajiboye, Robert F Kirsch, Jonathan Miller and Dustin Tyler will follow the film.
