Screening: The Falling

The Falling

The screening will be followed by an expert panel discussion and audience debate to explore some of the themes raised by the film, including mass hysteria, media and the representation of girls, the politics of symptoms and classification, and teenage mental health and illness.

A collaboration between Chapter Arts Centre, the British Film Institute (Film hub Wales) and Cardiff University. This programme of events curated by Dr Katie Featherstone will explore contemporary social and cultural developments and the ideas found within new-release, cult and classic film, with a focus on understandings of the mind, human behaviour, memory, the life-course, and ageing.
