In Deborah Zoe Laufer's INFORMED CONSENT, a genetic anthropologist acquires blood samples from the Havasupai tribe in Arizona to try and halt their genetic trend of diabetes. She also uses the blood to determine the origins of the tribe, with her discoveries going against their culture's beliefs.

Sloan Foundation Project present Informed Consent, a New York City premiere by Deborah Zoe Laufer (END DAYS, LEVELING UP) and directed by Obie winner Liesl Tommy (APPROPRIATE, THE GOOD NEGRO).
