This week’s Date Features the beautifully symbolic movie “GATTACA.”
The 1997 film, directed by Andrew Niccol, is the story of a genetically inferior man named Vincent who assumes the identity of a genetically superior man in order to pursue his lifelong dream of space travel.
If you haven’t seen GATTACA, we highly recommend it. And even if you have, this movie is worth watching again. It is a touching and very thought provoking film. Just be sure to have lots tissues on hand -you’ll definitely need them.
You can watch the movie for free this week, on YouTube. It’s available in Spanish, English and Hungarian. The links are below.
Once you and your friend or s/o have finished watching the film, you can download our free Movie Activity sheet to look through & complete together. It features 6 pages of cool facts, trivia as well as some special extras like deleted scenes and outtakes for the film.
This Activity sheet is an interactive PDF, so don’t worry if you don’t have a printer. You can complete this without printing it out! Just click the buttons to access the special features or type in your answers on the lines provided.
To get the full benefit of this interactive, editable file you will need to have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer. You can download a free copy of Adobe Reader at http://adobe.com/go/reader.
Since the subject of the movie is genetic alteration & perfection, we thought you might also enjoy the following online games which are also geared towards geneticism.
Foldit is a revolutionary new game, in which YOU just play to solve puzzles, and WE test your solutions to work on curing cancer, AIDS, and a host of diseases.
Players can work alone or with teams, to compete in puzzles and challenges.
EteRNA is a fun matching game in which a players must recreate a given shape by manipulating RNA molecules. These are shapes that researchers would like to learn to create in reality.
