The Gene: An Intimate History is a new documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns.
You can attend a FREE preview of the film on Tuesday, March 10th at 6 p.m., at the Georgia Public Broadcasting building in midtown Atlanta.
After the film, you can choose to stick around for a panel discussion about the bioethics of gene editing with scholars from the Emory Center for Ethics and the Personal Genetics Education Project.
Gene editing technology has advanced rapidly in recent years, bringing with it new therapies for a range of conditions. But what are the implications? The film explores the answer to that question.
This event is presented as part of the Atlanta Science Festival — along with nearly 100 other free events.
While the event is free, you must RSVP and print a ticket through Eventbrite.
Georgia Public Broadcasting is located at:
260 14th Street NW
The building is near the Arts Center MARTA station on the red/gold line. Walking time is about 13 minutes from the station.
