World Science Festival Brisbane
Empire of Our Senses: the Body and Mind in Science

21 Mar 2018 – 25 Mar 2018 | GOMA | Cinema A

Presented in partnership with Queensland Museum, this program of documentaries and films for the 2018 World Science Festival Brisbane reflects on some of the expectations we have of our minds and bodies and how these can be re-evaluated through deeper scientific investigation. The program includes films that unpack our sense of smell, our desire to communicate with the unknown, as well as fictional works exploring the role of ethics in scientific research.
