A special family day of film and TV screenings at The Capitol that celebrates the power of screen stories to help us understand memory and change.
This combo, never seen before on the big screen, is as fun as it is surreal, supernatural, and (maybe even a little) scary.
We start with beloved Australian classic 'Round The Twist' (1990) followed by new, Logie-winning childrens show 'Crazy Fun Park' (2023). In the interval, meet RMIT social scientists who will reflect on what these shows tell us about the struggles we all face. We then finish with the stop-motion animated film 'Coraline' (2009), acclaimed for its quirky, spooky, moving exploration of how young people experience change.
Our Social Worlds is a highlight of RMIT's events marking national Social Sciences Week, convened by the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia.
This event is supported by the RMIT Enabling Impact Platforms, College of Design and Social Context, College of Business and Law, School of Global, Urban and Social Studies and RMIT Culture.
Date: Saturday 9 September 2023
Location: The Capitol, 113 Swanston St, Melbourne, VIC 3000
