A Dangerous Idea: Eugenics, Genetics and the American Dream


USA/UK, 2017, 106 min.

Director: Stephanie Welch
Producers: Andrew Kimbrell, Mary Morgan, Stephanie Welch, Jed Riffe
Writer: Stephanie Welch, Andrew Kimbrell

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.
