It's life, but not as we know it...

In a future where embryos are genetically edited to remove imperfections, Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke) has always fantasised about traveling into outer space, but is grounded by his status as a genetically inferior 'in-valid', whose parents opted to have him naturally without genetic interference.

Without any hope of pursuing his dreams under his own identity, he purchases DNA samples from Jerome Morrow (Jude Law), a laboratory-engineered 'valid' to trick mandatory DNA testing. He assumes Jerome's identity, and joins the Gattaca space programme, proving genetics aren’t everything that make a person.

What was science fiction in 1997 is now a potential reality of scientific research and development. Before the film, join us for a brief outline of current research and the modern applications of gene editing with Professor Peter Dearden from the University of Otago.

Sci-fi Fridays take place every second Friday of the month in Otago Museum's Perpetual Guardian Planetarium. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase.
