Join us as we revisit the film Gattaca -- the dystopian vision of a vastly unequal future that continues to shape our discussions of human genetic technologies 20 years after its release. How does Gattaca help us answer the questions we face today, as discrimination against people with disabilities continues at the same time that genetic modification of future generations becomes technically possible? A moderated discussion with disability scholars and activists following the screening will include: Alice Wong, Sara Acevedo, Dominika Bednarska, Lawrence Carter-Long, Catherine Kudlick and Marcy Darnovsky. Free.
