Filmosophy: Being Charlie Kaufman

Until Wed 06 Dec 

Filmosophy returns for a ninth season of thought-provoking films and philosophical discussions. This season we celebrate the work of award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. Kaufman engages with great creativity, rare imagination and whimsical humour some of the most fascinating issues in philosophy. Join us in exploring questions regarding the nature of consciousness, truth, art, and the human condition through the mind of one of the most original artists of the 21st century.

Each film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion hosted by James Mooney, lecturer in film and philosophy (Centre for Open Learning, University of Edinburgh).
