Dr. Joe Cain, UCL Science and Technology Studies
Based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial – when an American school teacher was arrested for teaching evolution – this Hollywood classic tells the story of the showdown between science and religion: God vs. Darwin. Director Stanley Kramer also had a thing or two to say about free speech and the McCarthy-era persecution of liberals.
Starring Spencer Tracey, Fredric March and Gene Kelly (yes, the dancer!), this film speaks to issues we face now just as much as we did then. As usual, the film will be introduced by our resident film boffin, Dr. Joe Cain.
Part of the ‘Natural Change Season’ at the Grant Museum.
