The Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine will host its second annual Bioethics Film Festival, "Almost Human?" April 4–6, 2017.

The screening of Avatar will be preceded by a catered reception and a conversation with Penn bioethics professor Jonathan Moreno and digital media executive Scott Ross.

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people.

This year’s other films in the Penn Bioethics Film Fest are Her on April 5th, and Ex Machina on April 6th.
