1. Gattaca (1997)
This movie tells a story about a world in which children are conceived by genetic manipulation.

This movie shows the chasing of dreams and the ability to think outside the box. Just like us CreaTers. It shows us to keep on dreaming, for that everything is possible.
2. Catfish (2010)
This title may sound very familiar if you watch MTV often. Catfish is a series often shown at this channel, but there is also a movie. The documentary is about Nev’s own story, about how he fell in love with this girl online and went looking for her in real life.
We, CreaTers, love the internet and this movie shows the lies of the digital world. It gives us a little heads up to be careful who to trust, but also shows everybody has his own story and own reasons.
3. WALL-E (2008)
This movie features WALL-E, a small waste processing robot with a childish innocence and curiosity. After being alone for over 700 years, he gets a visit from an advanced and beautiful robot called EVE. He can’t help falling in love and in willing to follow her through the entire universe.
