A Dangerous Idea

A Dangerous Idea

Presented by California Film Institute at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center

A dangerous idea has threatened the American Dream from the beginning: the belief that some groups and individuals are inherently superior to others and more deserving of fundamental rights.

Such biological determinism provided justification for many great injustices in our country’s history.

This film explores how biologically determined politics has disenfranchised women and people of color and provided a rationale for state-sanctioned crimes committed against America’s most vulnerable citizens.

Featuring interviews with such social thinkers as Van Jones and Robert Reich as well as prominent scientists, this documentary is a radical reassessment of the meaning, use and misuse of gene science.

In Person: filmmakers Stephanie Welch, Maureen Gosling and Jed Riffe
