FACING GOYA

In Facing Goya, one woman takes us into the world of cloning and genetic profiteering. Surrounded by zealous scientists and eager business executives, she confronts the temptation of cloning Goya’s creativity for commercial profit, as Goya’s skull and DNA are fed to those exploiting science’s triumph over nature.
