Film screening: Bride of Frankenstein
- Thu 05 Mar 2015
- 6:00 pm
Part of the Wellcome Trust funded Playing God Project and presented by the Science Entertainment Lab at the University of Manchester this season of six films confronts questions about the nature of and connections between science and religion. How do we anticipate and comprehend worlds just beyond our grasp? How do we find ways of understanding and portraying the interplay between science and religion on film? The classic Bride of Frankenstein sees a scientist “playing God” in his creation of an unnatural creature (and his bride). At each film screening an expert speaker will provide a brief introduction at 6.30 and then lead a post-screening discussion with the audience. The evening will include an opening reception from 6.00pm where drinks will be available for purchase. See the Lab website for full list of dates and times of screenings or contact organizers Ray Macauleyray.firstname.lastname@example.org or Amy Chambers email@example.com for further information.
