Getting Up: The Tempt One Story Trailer

 About The Film:http://gettingup-thedoc.com

 

How does a fallen man get back up?

 

Tony ‘TEMPT’ Quan is a legendary LA graffiti artist, social activist and publisher. In 2003, he was diagnosed with ALS (also called Lou Gherig’s Disease), a degenerative nerve disorder which has rendered him unable to move, breathe or speak…...........

But his mind and creative spirit are still intact.

 

In 2009, Mick Ebeling and his Not Impossible Foundation brought a motley crew of international hackers and artists to Los Angeles to attempt the impossible: 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 create art. Getting Up: The Tempt One Story beautifully illustrates that through the will of two men, and on the shoulders of a community, anything is possible.
