Leeds Centre for Medical Humanities

An interdisciplinary collaboration between the Faculties of Arts and Medicine & Health at the University of Leeds

Leeds International Film Festival

As part of the Leeds International Film Festival, we’ve organised a screening of Regan Brashear’s fabulous documentary ‘Fixed: the Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement.’ It’s a really thoughtful and thought-provoking film on the issues of human augmentation and enhancement, and very much a Medical Humanities text.

From botox to bionic limbs, the human body is more upgradeable than ever. But how much of it can we alter and still be human? What do we gain or lose in the process? This award-winning documentary explores the social impact of human augmentation. Haunting and humorous, poignant and political, Fixed rethinks disability and normalcy by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever. The screening will be followed by a discussion lead by Stuart Murray from the University of Leeds Centre of Medical Humanities. See here for the trailer
