Fixed: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement

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? Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks “disability” and “normalcy” by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever.

Since its release a little over one year ago, Fixed has screened in film festivals around the world and as a keynote at 7 academic and professional conferences. Most recently the United Nations licensed the film for their work on the Convention for the Rights of People with Disabilities. Learn more at: http://fixedthemovie.com/
