Director Josef is an ambitious character that will let nothing stand in his way. He says “It’s right that someone like you is taking us to Titan.” signifying his conditional acceptance of Vincent Freeman as he is unaware of his inferior DNA. Also, showing Vincent transcending his original destiny of being a lower class citizen set out for him by the scientific and rational society. This is a great depiction of the director's confirmation to the scientific and rational society because of course a person with perfect genes should be chosen.
Murder of the Mission Director Edit
The mission director wanted to postpone the mission even though the mission had a very small window that it could launch.
The mission director that was killed by Director Josef was hated because he caused cutbacks and was trying to stop the mission to Titan numerous times. Vincent was first thought to have killed him with a keyboard, but Detective Hugo later discovered that Director Josef was the culprit. The mission had a very small time frame that it could launch in and the setbacks made by the mission director angered Director Josef because he was old and if they missed the time frame he wouldn't live to see the next one.
Defying Society Edit
Director Josef killed the mission director and his DNA would have to have been exceptionally perfect for him to be working in such an honorable role at Gattaca. This shows humans can be cruel even if they have the ‘perfect’ DNA and is an example that in a society that seems to be only rational and scientific passion prevails
