From botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more “upgradeable” than ever. But how much of it can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process? This award-winning documentary addresses the social impact of human biotechnologies. Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, “Fixed” rethinks “disability” and “normalcy” by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever. Directed by Regan Brashear. Panel discussion to follow.

Presented by the Superfest Film Festival, Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability, San Francisco Senior and Disability Action, Making Change Media, Fat Rose/Fat Lib Ink, Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund, “Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement,” California Care Rationing Coalition and #NoBodyIsDisposable Coalition
