This is an open thread for your thoughts on the Cardiff sciSCREEN screening of The Hurt Locker at Chapter Arts Centre. What did you think about the film itself, and about the issues raised during the audience/panel discussion that followed?
Cardiff sciSCREEN is a cross-disciplinary programme that promotes the engagement of publics with science and the academy. Using special showings of new release films, sciSCREEN uses local academic expertise to discuss contemporary developments in science in an understandable and entertaining way, facilitating debate on the wider social and cultural implications of these advances. These discussions draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives and the broad repertoire of themes found within contemporary cinema.
