The Human Trial (Events)


In 2011, Lisa Hepner and her husband Guy Mossman heard about a radical stem cell treatment for diabetes, a disease that, shockingly, kills more than five million people each year. Driven by a desire to cure Lisa of her own type 1 diabetes (T1D), the filmmakers were given unprecedented, real-time access to a clinical trial — only the sixth-ever embryonic stem cell trial in the world. What follows is an intimate journey with the patients and scientists who risk everything to be first.
More than a decade in the making, the first-person, verité film is about science, but it’s also an emotional, multilayered quest that transcends the genre. It’s about believing that the good of the many outweigh the good
