NYU School of Medicine Adult ADHD Program to Host a Special Screening of “Gigante: A Documentary"

Written by NYU Langone Medical Center on 28 May 2012.

torres111215ntNew York City - The NYU School of Medicine will host a special screening of GIGANTE, a documentary about Andrés “Yungo” Torres, a Puerto Rican professional baseball player currently with the New York Mets and his struggles with acute ADHD. It revisits the pivotal years of his childhood in flashbacks interpreted by children culled from the humble Western Puerto Rican neighborhood where Yungo was raised and flashes forward between his last year as a San Francisco Giant and his new beginning with the Mets. Starring his teammates, coaches, family, and the luminaries of ADHD research, GIGANTE aims to put a light on the man who has achieved so much in spite of one of the most acute manifestations of the disorder. Part cautionary tale, part biopic, it aims to inform, enlighten and inspire.

There will also be a discussion panel on adult ADHD chaired by Lenard Adler, MD, director of the Adult ADHD Program, NYU School of Medicine and interviews with Andres in English and Spanish with Xavier Castellanos, MD.

The film was written, produced and directed by Chusy (Anthony Haney-Jardine), a Sundance Award-winning filmmaker.

Where: Farkas Auditorium, 550 First Avenue, New York, NY 10016
