Producer and Pitt lecturer Carl Kurlander worked with Pittsburgh-based filmmakers Tjardus Greidanus and Laura Davis to create a documentary about Dr. Thomas Starzl and his groundbreaking work on liver transplantation. The documentary, called “Burden of Genius,” has been playing at venues around the country, but held its Pittsburgh premiere at the Carnegie Science Center last week. Many of the screenings also included post-show discussions with local experts, some of whom appeared in the film.
