Description

Documentary: Mendel – The Father of Genetics

September 21, 2017, 6:00 PM

The Embassy of the Czech Republic features Czech Television’s documentary Mendel – The Father of Genetics, produced by Jana Studničková and Otakáro Schmidt, on Thursday, September 21, 2017, at 6 pm. The film discusses the life and meticulous work of the monk who was the first to apply mathematics to botany through simple yet genius experiments, the significance of which no one understood in the 19th century. Learn about Mendel’s twist of fate through his failures, which led him to succeed and discover an entirely new science, genetics, in his garden. Leave, pondering the importance of his legacy on today’s genetic discoveries and the relationship between science and faith, then and now.  (Dir. Otakáro Mario Schmidt, 2016, 52 min., in English)
