The Accidental Advodate is a documentary about the controversy over the funding and regulation of stem cell research, and the implications for the U.S. life sciences industry. Filmmaker Jessica Gerstle says her family became aware of the debate only after her father, a surgeon and sports enthusiast, suffered a bicycle accident that left him quadriplegic four years ago. Admission is free.
