What You'll Get
Delve into the reality and science behind the silver screen when The Field Museum hosts a screening of Andrew Niccol’s 1997 futuristic thriller Gattaca at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre. You’ll enter an alternate future in which “designer people” – forged in test tubes – rule society and genetics determine a person’s future. In this world, a person with the right genetic stuff can do anything; but a person with even a slight defect or even potential for a defect is a prisoner of his own biological cells. In a setting this stark and unforgiving, Ethan Hawke tries to game the system and takes Uma Thurman and Jude Law along for the dangerous ride. After the screening, you’ll hear a discussion on molecular systematics and evolution with Field Museum experts Shannon Hackett and Kevin Feldheim.
