HELP GET THE WORD OUT

We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this film to audiences across the country. Together, we can launch a grassroots engagement campaign to support our release in the fall. The more successful we make these initial screenings, the wider we can expand across the country, working with partners to engage communities in unique ways that can only be done in a theatrical setting.

Your help will allow us to:

  • Hold screenings in 15 Cities across the country by working with local and national stakeholder organizations to raise visibility of the film and the issues.
  • Invite important thinkers and changemakers in our film to participate Q&A panels after screenings
  • Develop educational materials to accompany screenings

SYNOPSIS

A DANGEROUS IDEA is a cautionary tale about the powerful current of biological determinism that has eroded the idea of equality throughout modern American history. It reveals how scientists and policy makers have promoted genetic pseudoscience to roll back gains on race, class, and gender equality based on the false idea that genes determine who we are and what we can achieve. Like no other film before it, A DANGEROUS IDEA maps the front lines in the battle for the soul of this country, as economic and ideological interests continue to use the gene myth to unravel the American Dream.
