FEATURING: Ric Esther Bienstock, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Winner of the Birks Diamond Tribute to the Year’s Women in Film

MODERATOR: Linda Wright, Ethics Section Editor, Progress in Transplantation Journal

Join us for the viewing of an award winning documentary, Tales from the Organ Trade, and a conversation with the Director and Producer, Ric Esther Bienstock. The evening will be moderated by Ms. Linda Wright, a well-known expert in transplantation ethics. This film is “a gritty and unflinching descent into the shadowy world of black-market organ trafficking….This is not a black and white story of exploitation, but rather, a nuanced and complex story that compels you to explore your own moral and ethical beliefs.” (www.talesfromtheorgantrade.com)

Organized by the University of Toronto Joint Centre for Bioethics. The purpose of the Alloway Lecture Series, established by Maranatha Foundation in 1993, is to bring to the University each year one or more experts of international stature in the broad field of bioethics to deliver lectures on topics related to ethical aspects of organ transplantation, when possible, but the Lectures are not limited to this field of medical ethics.
