Island (2018) film screening

Medical Anthropology Film and Discussion Group

Tuesday 26 January 2021   15:30 to 17:00

Location:

Virtual Event

The GTC Medical Anthropology Film and Discussion Group explores the extent to which film can complement, enrich and further the study of medical anthropology themes, topics and methods. After watching selected clips, we discuss a film’s content and approach, and interrogate its capacity to support the analysis of issues relating to illness, crisis, health and wellbeing.

This term’s focus is the theme of ‘death and dying’.

In this meeting, the group will discuss Steven Eastwood’s 2018 film Island. On the Island of Wight, four individuals experience the end of life. Illness progresses and relationships shift. We witness rarely seen and intensely private moments.

The screening will last 40 minutes followed by discussion. This film can be viewed online by participants up to one day after the event.
