sciSCREEN: The Hunger Games
20/03/2014, 17:30 - 21:15
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Sixteen year-old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sister’s place and must rely upon her sharp instincts when she’s pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
FREE film screening + discussion. Following the film, we present a FREE drinks reception and panel discussion. We will explore themes including Roman Gladitorial Events, Food, Survival of the Fittest and Class and Inequality.
