Frankenstein on Film
Frankenstein and Frankenstein’s monster have featured in many films including classics such as Frankenstein (1931) and The Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Cinema historian (and director of Bristol Festival of Ideas) Andrew Kelly takes us on a journey through Frankenstein on film with clips and comparisons with Mary Shelley’s great work.
This event will also include the first reading of a new poem by Adam Thorpe, commissioned specially for Frankenstein, culture and science.
This is one of the events in a special weekend of activity looking at Frankenstein, culture and science. It is part of Bristol800: a programme throughout 2016 marking significant anniversaries in the city and what they mean for Bristol now and into the future. Mary Shelley lived in Bristol in 1815. Bristol800 is an initiative of Bristol Cultural Development Partnership (Arts Council England, Bristol City Council and Business West).
