The Bioethics Library’s Film Collection

Brainthatwouldntdie_film_posterDid you know the Bioethics Research Library is home to a collection of more than 700 films related to bioethical issues? We’ve put together an extensive list and descriptions of this rare and hard-to-find titles. Ranging from black and white films from the early 20th century (such as the “The Black Stork”), interviews of scholars such as the late Dr. Edmund Pellegrino, to modern fiction such as Gattaca, the collection is quite diverse in scope and content. You can check out the Bioethics Film Collection page to browse through titles and read a little more about each one. We plan to make these available for faculty to reserve for their courses and for viewing in the Bioethics Research Library.
