The Mason Institute are planning to show GATTACA in the Brass Monkey (4 Drummond Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH8 9TU) on Thursday 26th March from 5.30 till 8pm. Dr Shona Kerr has very kindly agreed to give a short talk about some of the issues raised by the film (see here for her research profile) in order to kick start discussions.
It might be helpful if you are intending on coming to drop us a line. Depending on the success of this event we will plan more in future. Do feel free to pass on this invite to anyone who might be interested as well as making any suggestions that you might have more generally on films that deal with the themes broadly defined in terms of socio-ethics, science, law, technology, medicine etc.
