Film Screening: Children of Men
January 29, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Children of Men is a 2006 dystopian action thriller film based on P. D. James’ 1992 novel The Children of Men. The film takes place in 2027, when two decades of human infertility have left society on the brink of collapse. Undocumented immigrants seek sanctuary in the United Kingdom, where the last functioning government imposes oppressive immigration laws on refugees. The film follows a civil servant attempting to help a refugee escape the chaos. Read reviews from the New York Times and Vulture.
This screening is organized by Priscilla Layne, Associate Professor of German and Adjunct Associate Professor of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies at UNC-CH. It is a precursor to the March 2020 conference “Environmentalism, Fantasy and Intersectionality: A Comparison Between the US and the EU“. This screening is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
