The Institute of Light|17 September 8pm

Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) has a seemingly idyllic lifestyle: a secure job, a loving family and a peaceful home. Yet, unbeknownst to him, his entire existence has been one long TV series, the people around him Hollywood actors, the town a massive studio set, and the whole show orchestrated by a visionary director (Ed Harris)…

The film will be preceded by a talk from Dr Tony Milligan, teaching fellow in ethics and the philosophy of religion at Kings College London, who will explore the theme that even when technology remains within our control, love stays resistant.
