Superhuman Body: World of Medical Marvels at the AutoNation® IMAX® 3D Theater at the Museum of Discovery and Science

April 30 @ 10:00 am - December 1 @ 11:00 pm

$2 – $65

Explore the wonders of the human body and the exciting breakthroughs in science and bioengineering that are changing the course of human health with Superhuman Body: World of Medical Marvels now playing at the AutoNation® IMAX® 3D Theater at the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS). Narrated by Academy Award®-winner Matthew McConaughey, Superhuman Body: World of Medical Marvels, shares the latest revolutionary breakthroughs in science and bioengineering, as well as stories from the researchers, scientists and everyday people that showcase these life-saving medical technologies.

Superhuman Body combines state-of-the-art CGI with the immediacy of the giant screen experience to show the inner workings of the human body and the use of science to intervene when our bodies break down. Audiences will learn about the medical innovations that changed the lives of individuals like Ty Duckett, an adaptive surfer with an above-the-knee amputation; James Garrett, whose heart condition was treated with a valve so advanced it didn’t require open heart surgery; and Emily Whitehead, a teen whose childhood leukemia was cured after life-changing T-cell therapy.

The film also features the scientists behind these medical innovations, including Dr. Carl June, who invented the T-cell therapy that Whitehead underwent; Dr. Ayanna Howard, a pioneering roboticist who has made major advances in medical robotics; and Dr. Hugh Herr, a double amputee and professor at MIT responsible for major advancements in bionic limbs and prosthetics that provide greater mobility.

Superhuman Body: World of Medical Marvels is a MacGillivray Freeman film presented by Edwards Lifesciences and Griffin Catalyst. It is family-friendly and has a running time of 40 minutes. For more information, visit superhumanbodyfilm.com.
