2016 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Clay Tweel and subject Michel Varisco from Gleason (Nov 10th Only)

After former New Orleans Saints defensive back Steve Gleason receives a devastating diagnosis of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, he turns the camera on himself to provide his then-unborn son a sense of the father he may otherwise never know in this emotionally powerful portrait. Steve and his steadfast wife Michel use humor to cope with their ever-changing reality and charge ahead with inspirational optimism to improve the quality of life for people living with ALS.
