Morning Edition: Science on Screen

From The Time Machine to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, many movies either focus on scientists or are rooted in science. As part of a national program, Hartford's Real Art Ways is trying to bring film and science even closer together.

"Science on Screen" comprises of a series of movies that are introduced by scientists, doctors and researchers with expertise in a related field. Tonight (1/10), the genetic engineering film Gattaca will be introduced by the Director of Genetics Research at Hartford Hospital, Dr. Gualberto Ruaño.

We spoke with Meghan Dahn who organizes the series for Real Art Ways.
