Sunday, March 18, 2018, from 4pm – 6pm
In honor of the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, we present a film screening of James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein. A rare sequel considered to be greater than the original, it poses questions about the limits of science, the manipulation of life, and the ethical responsibility of the scientist.
Join Fernbank Museum of Natural History; Emory bioethicist and Director of the Center for Ethics, Paul Root Wolpe; and author, filmmaker and media historian, Eddy Von Mueller, for a screening and lively discussion of science and ethics related to the film.
Presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival.
Cost: Free; advance reservations required at 404.929.6400.
Bride of Frankenstein is rated TV-PG. Film will be presented in Fernbank’s Frances Wood Wilson Foundation Theater and will not be in giant screen format. Screening tickets do not include Museum or Giant Screen Theater admission.
