 “Twitch,” a documentary film chronicling the emotional journey of an 18-year-old as she is tested for a degenerative genetic disease, will be screened on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham at 1 p.m. September 10 at Volker Hall, 1670 University Boulevard.

The producer and star of the film Kristen Powers will be at the screening of her movie, which follows her genetic testing for Huntington’s disease (HD), a neurological brain disorder that led to the death of her mother. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the fatal gene, which means Kristen and her younger brothers are at risk of inheriting the same fatal disease.
