Children of Men Film Screening

When: Wednesday, May 31, 2017 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Where: E-Building, E-500


Children of Men is a 2006 film by Y Tu Mamá Tambien and Gravity Director, Alfonso Cuarón. The movie is a beautifully shot dystopian thriller set in the UK which depicts a grim future where humanity faces extinction. In this world, England is under dictatorial rule, and the state manipulates public fear and dread to maintain order and suppress dissent. The film lends itself nicely to discussions of contemporary trends, like the ascent of authoritarian nationalism in the west, Brexit, detention/imprisonment, gender politics, and the public health and environmental consequences of unrestrained economic growth.


The panel will include faculty from the fields of criminal justice, philosophy, and sociology who will offer their own disciplinary perspectives on the film.


Faculty: Feel free to bring your classes.
