About this Event

The MIT community is invited to an exclusive documentary premiere screening event.

In the summer of 1977, a contentious debate about genetic engineering erupted in the city of Cambridge, pitting scientist against scientist and citizen against citizen. Join us for the story of how the unlikely mix of science and engineering, politics, the space race, and urban renewal transformed Kendall Square into the Biotechnology Capital of the World.

A conversation with biotech pioneer and Institute Professor Phillip Sharp and documentary producer Joe McMaster of MIT Video Productions will follow.

Join us for a reception after the screening

Presented by MIT Video Productions
