Playing God in Manchester

A unique and fascinating film series kicks off in Manchester on March 5.

Beginning with The Bride of Frankenstein, The Playing God Film Series will explore the diverse themes of religion and science in six classic movies.

The events have been organised by the Science and Entertainment Laboratory, based in the Faculty’s Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine.

Each screening is free and will feature an introduction by an expert and a panel discussion. Find out more about the rest of the series, or nip over to Faculty blog to find out why the series was put together.
