Film Matters 2016 programme

7 December 2015

Building on the success of the Film Matters 2015 programme, the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture is delighted to announce details of the 2016 screenings.

This year the films chosen relate to the concept of ‘change’. Firstly two films, Ex Machina and A.I. relating to recent developments in Artificial Intelligence, forming part of the Law and Artificial Intelligence Series, the first event of which took place in October 2015.

Broadly related to this is a screening of The Imitation Game, introduced by Writer in Residence Mike Garry, who is currently collaborating with composer Philip Glass on a project based on the life of Alan Turing. Finally, in support of National Stroke Awareness Month we will be screening The Possibilities are Endless which documents the impact of the stroke suffered by musician Edwyn Collins, details to be confirmed.
