Event description

Description

Come and watch this screening of a work-in-progress documentary ‘Dis-Ease’ by Mariam Ghani. The film explores how pop-culture images and the language we use to talk about disease affects the ways we treat people who are sick and how we respond to epidemics. After the screening, there will be a chance to hear from the director and ask questions.

Dis-Ease was originally commissioned for Contagious Cities and is almost entirely made from archival material sourced from The New York Public Library, the New York Academy of Medicine, Wellcome Collection and the Brooklyn Historical Society.

Mariam Ghani is an artist, writer and film-maker. Her multidisciplinary work looks at places, spaces and moments where social, political and cultural structures take on visible forms.

Location: We’ll be in the Henry Wellcome Auditorium. To get there, take the stairs or the lift down to level –1.
