Popcorn, Science on Screen :Gattaca with Q & A

Protected content presents Science on Screen, a series of compelling dramas with a science twist.

Come along to enjoy a great film, complimentary popcorn, and explore the themes featured in the film with speakers from the Crick and beyond.

Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke) has always fantasized about traveling into outer space, but is grounded by his status as a genetically inferior "in-valid." He decides to fight his fate by purchasing the genes of Jerome Morrow (Jude Law), a laboratory-engineered "valid." He assumes Jerome's DNA identity and joins the Gattaca space program, where he falls in love with Irene (Uma Thurman). An investigation into the death of a Gattaca officer (Gore Vidal) complicates Vincent's plans.

Followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A to explore the themes of genetic engineering and its potential impact on society.
