Film SeriesWatch a film, and explore its social and ethical issues.
The Science & Society film series occurs following Periodic Tables events once each month. The program uses documentary films to create opportunities for the Durham community to both learn about topics in science, and to explore current issues in through film while engaging in dialogue with filmmakers, scientific experts and others working in fields which selected films highlight.
Film Series events begin just after our Periodic Table events wrap, one Tuesday evening per month at approximately 8:15pm with panel discussions following a screening of the film.
