Bioethics and the Mill Valley Film Festival
Bioethics Screen Reflections Supports the California Film Institute 38th Mill Valley Film Festival (www.cafilm.org) From October 8, 2015 to October 18, 2015 we will screen/review the following films:
A Light Beneath Their Feet
Son of Saul (Saul Fia)
Here Is Harold (Her er Harold)
Love Between the Covers
Beasts of No Nation
A Perfect Day
Paper TigersIn Defense of Food
A special focus will follow bioethical issues reflected in the 38th Mill Valley Film Festival category of “Mind the Gap” which considers the relatively small number of women able to earn a living in the film industry, despite the large percentage of talent and skill women represent in the field.
Follow along with us over the month of October. Mill Valley Film Festival programmers have proven to be among the most savvy in the field. Their online film notes can guide direct viewing for the year even, if you are not able to attend. But, do try to join us. Often the world, continental and USA premieres offered become the most highly awarded films of their release years.
We will keep you posted
