Event Details

Something The Lord Made – Two men–one a wealthy white chief surgeon, the other a poor black lab technician–achieve a monumental medical breakthrough that earned one accolade…and the other a painful lesson in racism and unequal opportunity. Working in 1940s Baltimore on an unprecedented technique for performing heart surgery on “blue babies,” Dr. Alfred Blalock (Alan Rickman – Love Actually) and lab tech Vivien Thomas (rapper Mos Def – Monster’s Ball) form an impressive team. But even as the two invent a new field of medicine–saving thousands of lives in the process–social pressures threaten to undermine their collaboration and tear their friendship apart in the historical drama Something The Lord Made.
