The Man Who Stole Einstein’s Brain

The Man Who Stole Einstein’s Brain, the new documentary based on Carolyn’s book, Possessing Genius, is honoured to be one of 24 films selected for HotDoc’s 2023 Special Presentations at the Toronto HotDoc’s film festival.

Riffing off Possessing Genius, the doc has been brewing ever since Carolyn first met Tom Harvey – the mysterious doctor who took Einstein’s brain in 1955 while performing the autopsy on the iconic genius — and then kept it for the next 40 years. 

Check out the trailer and join Carolyn at the premiere May 3, 2023.
