NSWA is proud to host the U.S. premiere of “Genetic Me,” a documentary from Danish science writer Lone Frank.

“Genetic Me” is a humorous and very human gateway into the rising science of who we are. Using wit and authenticity, this documentary film connects a deeply personal tale with frontier genetic research and provides new perspectives on the eternal question of: “How did I become me?”

In the spirit of the Seattle International Film Festival, author and neurobiologist Lone Frank will introduce the film by video from her home in Denmark. Afterward, Evette Ludman, an expert in mental health and genetic testing from Group Health Research Institute (GHRI), joins us to discuss the science behind the film.  Snacks and beverages will be provided.

GHRI is located in the Met Park East building between downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill. Proceed to the 15th floor, despite what the directions say in the link.
