About the Film Series:

With powerful new biotechnologies now emerging, the prospect of creating humans with “better” genetic characteristics is on the horizon.  Some support these technologies as a way to “seize control of human evolution” or as an efficient means of producing “enhanced” children and future generations.  Others believe that they would encourage efforts to engineer children to specification, and that creating genetically modified humans would open the door to new forms of inequality, discrimination and conflict. This film series explores what it means to be human in a biotech age. All films will be screened on Tuesdays at 4:00 pm at 470 Stephens Hall – UC Berkeley. The series website provides the schedule for fall 2015/2016.
