DUE TO THE ANTICIPATED STORM, THE DATE OF THIS SCREENING HAS BEEN CHANGED TO FRIDAY MARCH 23rd.

The Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine will host its third annual Bioethics Film Festival, Frankenstein, March 20-22.

The screening of Young Frankenstein (1974) will begin at 6 pm, and will be preceded by a reception at 5:30pm. In addition to the screening there will be a panel discussion of the film with Penn faculty- Peter Decherney, Marcia Ferguson, John Gearhart, and Jonathan Moreno.

Respected medical lecturer Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) learns that he has inherited his infamous grandfather's estate in Transylvania. Arriving at the castle, Dr. Frankenstein soon begins to recreate his grandfather's experiments with the help of servants Igor (Marty Feldman), Inga (Teri Garr) and the fearsome Frau Blücher (Cloris Leachman). After he creates his own monster (Peter Boyle), new complications ensue with the arrival of the doctor's fiancée, Elizabeth (Madeline Kahn).


This year's other films in the Penn Bioethics Film Festival are The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) on March 20, and Blade Runner – The Final Cut (1982, re-released 2007) on March 22.
