Naturally Obsessed: the making of a scientist

Naturally Obsessed is a one-hour documentary by Richard and Carole Rifkind that can be booked for screening (no cost to attendees) at your very own institution ($165 for non-profits, $300 for others). Per the film’s slick Website, the documentary involved 3 years of filming as it followed a group of “irrepressible graduate students working towards the PhD degree, and their mentor, a tough but genial young professor.” You can all take a break from overstimulated grant writing to dream about who would portray you in the major motion picture of your own training experience …

    I just saw this movie the other night and would highly recommend it, especially if you are considering attending graduate school.

    Sounds interesting. Although the tag line “irrepressible graduate students and genial young professor” suggest they were filmed early in their studies/careers.
