Open City Docs Fest: Celebrating the best of documentary film in the heart of London

Frankenstein: A Modern Myth
Adam Low / 2012 / UK / 48’
Fri 22 June / 14:00 / Darwin Theatre

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the first and greatest myth of the modern scientific age, has like all enduring masterpieces, touched a nerve at critical points of human progress. Frankenstein haunts our age of global anxiety and unprecedented scientific experimentation like never before.

Frankenstein: A Modern Myth looks at the myth of Frankenstein through the prism of Danny Boyle’s sensational new sell-out production of Frankenstein at the National Theatre. The film features exclusive access to rehearsals and interviews with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature, and with Danny Boyle and writer Nick Dear.

Love that final scene so much...

But back to the documentary, which I sincerely hope will make its appearance on our small screens eventually – although Channel 4 seem extraordinarily reluctant to show it to us! The moment will have passed yet again very shortly. :-/ Enjoy this special screening. :-)
