May 16, Vic

On 16 MAy we have organized in Vic a matinee screenings of the film “Make People Better” for primary and secondary students. Hosted in collaboration with the Americana Film Fest and the Department of Education of the Generalitat of Catalonia, these screenings are offered with an aim to promote bioethical discussion.


In 2018, Chinese scientist He Jiankui crossed a significant threshold in human evolution, irreversibly altering the genetic structure of embryos to usher in the birth of the first babies with edited genomes. This controversial experiment sparked an international outcry, leading Chinese authorities to take swift action not only to suspend Dr He, but also address the situation of the twin girls whose genes he had edited.

This documentary unveils the untold story behind this historic scientific event, offering perspectives from those who witnessed it first-hand, encouraging viewers to reflect on the ethical implications arising from scientific advancements. Is it ethical to pursue every scientific possibility? Should we place limits on gene editing? Is transhumanism desirable? Should we allow genetic research in humans?




This activity is 100% subsidized.




For 4th ESO and Baccalaureate level students

Two of our audiovisual awards winners now showing in theatres

Mamífera” and “Mi sextorsión” films premiére

Two recipients of our Bioethics Audiovisual Award are coming to the big screen. The first film, “Mamífera” (She-Mammal), directed by Liliana Torres, is set to première in Barcelona on April 25, and the second film, titled “Diario de mi sextorsión” (Diary of my sextorsion), by Patrícia Franquesa, will be featured in the lineup as part of the Barcelona Docs festival in May.


“Mamífera”, recipient of the 2022 Audiovisual Award, tells the story of a couple facing an unplanned pregnancy. The film explores the myriad social factors surrounding motherhood, advocating for the right to choose not to become a parent.


Meanwhile, “Diario de mi sextorsión”, winner of the 2020 Audiovisual Award, explores the director’s personal experience with extortion. The film documents the aftermath of the theft of her laptop, which led to the circulation of intimate photos among her contacts. The film challenged the illusion of security surrounding our personal data and explores the vulnerability we often overlook.


Our Audiovisual Bioethics Awards are bestowed annually, recognizing films in the developmental stage that explore themes related to bioethics. This often serves as the initial step towards securing funding and commencing production. Some projects may take two or three years to come to fruition, while others never materialize due to insufficient support or funding. This makes it particularly significant in this case, as two of the awarded projects are now coming to the big screen.


Other recipients of these awards include “Bailar la locura” (Dancing madness, awarded in 2019) and “Ponto Final” (2021 special mention).
