Doors open at 5 pm 

Set in postwar Vienna, Austria, The Third Man stars Joseph Cotten as Holly Martins, a writer of pulp Westerns, who arrives penniless as a guest of his childhood chum Harry Lime (Orson Welles), only to find him dead! This award-winning 1949 British film noir, directed by Carol Reed and written by Graham Greene, is widely considered the best British film of the 20th century, and might still have lessons for us today.

Panel discussion from 7.20 - 8 pm

Chair: Ms. Madlen Davies, health and science reporter at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism

  • Dr. Clare Chandler, Medical Anthropologist, co-Director of the Antimicrobial Resistance Centre & Principal Investigator of the AMIS Hub, LSHTM
  • Dr. Laura Shallcross, NIHR Clinician Scientist & Honorary Consultant in Public Health, UCL 
  • Mr. Ross Macfarlane, Research Development Lead, Wellcome Collection

The panel will discuss (a) how the film depicts the roles of antimicrobials in society after they had so recently been mass-produced; (b) how this has changed today; and (c) how the roles of antimicrobials has spread and gained traction across the world.

Reception from 8 pm in the South Courtyard Cafe
