Filmosophy returns for a fifth season of original and thought-provoking films. This season will focus on the theme of ‘regeneration’ and is offered in association with the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine. The MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine is a world leading research centre studying stem cells, disease and tissue repair to advance human health.
- Tuesday 8 September: Never Let Me Go (Romanek 2010)
- Tuesday 13 October: I Am Breathing (Davie and McKinnon 2013)
- Tuesday 10 November: The Fountain (Aronofsky 2006)
- Tuesday 8 December: The Skin I Live In (Almodovar 2011)
The films screened will allow an opportunity to discuss the groundbreaking research currently being undertaken at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, the diseases studied, and associated ethical issues surrounding the use of stem cells. We will seek to distinguish between science fiction and science fact, and to gain a valuable insight into the lives of those touched by the diseases and injuries that regenerative medicine aims to treat.
