FINDING TYLER is my latest directorial project.
In August of 2003, Tyler Johnson was a prized scholar in theoretical physics. Months later he was homeless on the island of Corsica, a fugitive wanted by the FBI.
For six years Tyler sent letters to his family, each containing cryptic clues about his condition. Then the letters stopped arriving.
His final letter was found at his last known whereabouts: a remote mountain refuge near Corsica's highest peaks. Alongside that unsent letter was a journal outlining his years living on the run.
Using that journal—Tyler’s own words—and interviews with those who knew him best, Finding Tyler explores the introspective struggle of life as a fugitive.
FINDING TYLER premiered at the RiverRun International Film Festival in May 2021
and recently aired nationwide on PBS World Channel.
