The Perfect 46

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Geneticist Jesse Darden creates a website that pairs individuals with their ideal genetic partner for children.

The Perfect 46 explores three interwoven stories about Jesse Darden, the CEO of The Perfect 46: the height of his company, his failing marriage, and the aftermath of both. 

The Perfect 46 strives to be as scientifically accurate as possible. With the collaboration of scientific consultants, our script has been crafted to demonstrate a respect for science.

Many science fiction films (and specifically films about genetics) fail to fully explore the genre. Some begin with an interesting idea that devolves into an excuse for mindless action sequences. Some feature evil clones. Fake computer UI's.

These films rarely pose interesting questions about science; they reduce science to a colorful backdrop for conventional plot formulas. The Perfect 46 hopes to inspire debates about science and our world, specifically the "what ifs?" of personal genetic testing, set in the very near future. FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE
