Featuring interviews with social thinkers such as Van Jones and Robert Reich, as well as prominent scientists, A Dangerous Idea reassesses the meaning, use and misuse of gene science. It brings to light how false scientific claims have rolled back long fought for gains in equality, and the ways in which powerful interests are poised once again to use the gene myth. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring the film’s executive producer and co-writer, Andrew Kimbrell, Dr. Barbara Katz Rothman, Professor of Sociology, Public Health, Disability Studies and Women’s Studies, Baruch College, City University of New York, and Stuart Newman, Professor of Cell Biology and Anatomy at New York Medical College.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
