Shocking Film Details Case of Artist & Scientist Accused of "Bioterrorism"

By Rhizome

Don't miss Lynn Hershman Leeson's shocking new film, "Strange Culture," which documents the case of artist and professor Steven Kurtz and geneticist Robert Ferrell, accused in 2004 by the U.S. Justice Department of "bioterrorism" and currently awaiting trial. The case threatens to set dangerous precedent by eroding the boundary between civil and criminal law, and by criminalizing those who legitimately and legally criticize government policy.

"4 STARS... 'Strange Culture' is an important heads-up to what is going on in our country right now in the name of national security, and a brilliant statement on artistic freedom and the dangers it faces."
--Film Threat
