Screening: Mr Holmes



Tinted Lens  Mr Holmes

The screening at Chapter Arts Centre (www.Chapter.org) will be followed by an expert panel discussion and audience debate to explore some of the themes raised by this film. This will explore key philosophical ideas of the mind, memory, ageing, and identity; and the impact of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes at the end of the nineteenth century, and its impact on the genre of popular detective fiction and popular culture more widely.

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.  This free event is Tuesday the 7th of July, with the screening starting at 6.10pm, Chapter Arts Centre, followed by the panel discussion and debate.
