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 the attainment of genetic perfection through reproductive technology.

Born without the aid of this technology, Vincent Freeman strives to overcome his genetic flaws to achieve his dream.

The lecture focuses on the film's examination of identity, human aspiration and the idea of progress.
