Sam Bell is ending a three year contract as the solo caretaker of a lunar base, mining precious energy sources needed back on Earth. When he encounters what appears to be a second version of himself he has a personal crisis. This thrilling, retro sci-fi film is really about what it means to be human.
Duncan Wilson will be discussing key themes in the film "Moon" following the screening.
Duncan is a historian based at the University of Manchester's Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM). His research looks at the history of ethical debates in science and medicine, including popular attitudes to research on human tissues, embryo experiments, and the emergence of 'bioethics' in recent decades. He is the author of the 2011 book "Tissue Culture in Science and Society: The Public Life of a Biological Technique in Twentieth Century Britain".
Don't miss this special screening, in a pop-up HD cinema in MOSI's 1830 Warehouse.
