1951, Henrietta Lacks walks into the coloured section of a hospital in Baltimore with a pain in her abdomen. A cell sample taken without her permission was used as the raw material for some of the most important scientific discoveries of the past 100 years.
This powerful performance by Iron Oxide spans race and poverty in 1950’s America to current ethical debates about who owns our DNA.
