TIFF Higher Learning presents: Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement
As part of the United Nations' International Day for Persons with Disabilities, TIFF, Ryerson School of Disability Studies, and Tangled Art Disability are pleased to offer a free screening of Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement http://www.fixedthemovie.com/about/trailer/.
From botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more upgradeable than ever. But how much of it can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process? Award-winning documentary, Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement, explores the social impact of human biotechnologies. Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks "disability" and "normalcy" by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever.
