Notable figures from science and medicine introduce their favourite films, making unexpected connections, which show how scientific perspectives can shed light on artistic, cultural, and social issues. As the series unfolds audiences discover how science is a human endeavour as dependent on our creative impulses as any other. This season the Barbican will screen work from directors Darren Aronofsky, Ingmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick.
