Ingenue Wrap

For those of you that have asked me–Dr Angela, why are you so excited about doing a local film–are you getting into filmmaking or just promoting your wellness program?  Well, actually neither.  Let me give you a little history lesson on the film “Ingenue” that is scheduled for release in 2013 (an amazing film by Kate Chaplin).  Kate’s film is based on the historical icon Rosalind Franklin, frequently coined “The Dark Lady of DNA”. Rosalind was a British biophysicist who made substantial contributions to the understanding of DNA. It was her work using Xray diffraction images that led to the discovery of the DNA double helix even though it was Watson and Crick who received credit for this important find. Her  contribution to the discovery of DNA was largely overlooked due to widespread sexism in science in the 1950’s.

Kate’s storyline of  “Ingenue ” follows a family that finds a genetic clone of Rosaline Franklin’s DNA that is discovered living as a human analog in the basement of their home.  They are badgered into raising this clone as a human child.  The film outlines the issues of healthcare’s treatment of people, corporate treatment of society, and issues of the negligence of science being overcome by the underlying force of life —LOVE.     Please look for this film in theaters next year if you support the change that our nation needs to make to get back to the essentials of  human existence.
