Event Details

A film celebration of Everyday Cyborgs and Humanimals

 

If you had the choice between animal, mechanical or human parts to repair or replace your failing organs what would you choose?  If an individual is no longer 100% biologically human does that change their bodies, their identity and their relationships with significant others?  

 

On Saturday the 14th of April there will be a unique opportunity to view four short films and animations answering these questions from the perspectives of patients, artists and young people. Films include an animation exploring the dualism of the heart as the engine of the body and the seat of the soul; an action short created by young people based on how it would feel to be ‘humanimal’, and an animation of life as an everyday cyborg based on interviews with people who live life with an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD).
