Gattaca: recorded lecture

Recorded lecture

Prepare your students to study Andrew Niccol's DNA dystopia.

Set in the “not-too-distant future”, Gattaca presents a world without life and energy in pursuit of genetic perfection. In the talk, we examine issues relating to individuality and identity and highlight film language and narrative techniques.
