GATTACA: SCIENCE OR SCIENCE FICTION?

For the opening night of the 2011 Philadelphia Science Festival, Stefan Samulewicz and I co-hosted a screening of the classic sci-fi film, Gattaca (1997), which was followed by a one-hour discussion with the audience.

Prior to Gattaca, we screened the ultimate trailer: The Known Universe (2010). The six-minute film left the audience speechless and in sheer awe.
