About the program

"They used to say that a child conceived in love has a greater chance of happiness. They don't say that anymore."

Set in the “not-too-distant future”, Gattaca portrays a clinical society focused on attaining genetic perfection through reproductive technology. In the talk, we examine the social issues raised and the nature of identity, while also highlighting film language and narrative techniques.

This program runs for approximately 3 hours and 10 minutes. This includes a screening of the film, a short interval and a 60 minute lecture.
