Transplants & HIV on Screen

20 November, 2019, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Pedro Almodovar’s classic film All About My Mother (1999) maps LGBTQ+ lives and experiences onto a medicalised world, where access to technologies (including trans* health interventions, organ transplantation and HIV treatments) transform how we imagine our bodies, futures and lives together. This screening will feature a post-show discussion of transplantation and HIV, exploring how the film raises concerns around these life-changing technologies.

The discussion will be led by Donna McCormack, School of Literature and Languages, University of Surrey and primary investigator of the project ‘Transplant Imaginaries’  @transplanttalks and Ingrid Young, Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society, University of Edinburgh @ingridkyoung.

This event is part of Edinburgh Filmhouse’s ‘Over the Rainbow’ season. Free tickets will be available from the Filmhouse website from mid-October.

This event is part of the ‘Beyond Bodies’ series by Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society at University of Edinburgh.

In partnership with
