Burden of Genius

Fri.–Thurs., April 12–18

Relive the start of a medical revolution at Pittsburgh’s most advanced cinema. Burden of Genius tells the story of legendary transplant pioneer Dr. Thomas E. Starzl, who took what was once thought only the subject of science fiction—the idea of taking an organ from one person and transplanting it into another—and turned it into an everyday medical miracle, saving the lives of countless patients and transforming modern medicine.

Considered the “father of transplantation,” Starzl performed the world’s first successful liver transplant in 1967, but it wasn’t until he came to the University of Pittsburgh in 1981 that he perfected what was still considered an experimental procedure and helped what was then a Steel City struggling to reinvent itself become "the transplant capital of the world.”

Burden of Genius has captivated film festival audiences all over the world, winning Best Documentary prizes at the Cleveland International Film Festival and the Raw Science Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Several showings of Burden of Genius will feature special guests and speakers, including:

    3/4/2017 to 4/18/2019
  • Wed., April 17: After the 7 pm screening, Mary Lou McLaughlin, the founding director of the Family House, will talk about working with Dr. Starzl, transplant patients, and their families during the pioneering period where Pittsburgh was becoming “The Transplant Capital Of the World.”
     
  • 3/4/2017 to 4/19/2019
  • Thurs., April 18: After the 4 pm screening,  Burden of Genius Producer and Pitt Film Studies Senior Lecturer Carl Kurlander will discuss Dr. Starzl, the making of the movie, and what’s next for the film.

The Rangos Giant Cinema is honored to host the first public showings of the film for National Donate Life Month, appropriately in the town Starzl loved so much.
