Bioethics at the Cinema community conversation series
April 29, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
“The Danish Girl,” in the “Bioethics at the Cinema” community conversation series, organized by the Mayo Clinic Bioethics and the Rochester Public Library, seeks to create dialogue with the community around complex and timely topics. Films can be used as a powerful tool for exploring how our identities, family, community, and intimate relationships are marked by discrimination, stigma and inequality.
Cesar Gonzalez, Ph.D., L.P. and Dagoberto Jr. Heredia, Ph.D., Mayo Clinic Transgender Clinic, and Jessi Wangen and Mallory Heath, Southern Minnesota Transgender Support Network, will be on a panel discussion following the film.
“The Danish Girl” is a fictitious love story loosely inspired by the lives of Danish artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. Lili and Gerda’s marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.
This event is free and open to the public.
