ĊineXjenza – Split
March 15 @ 7:00 pm
Date and Time: Thursday 15 March 2018, 7.00PM (for Brain Awareness Week)
Entrance: Free (booking not required)
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr Fletcher, there remains one still submerged that is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him – as well as everyone around him – as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
ĊineXjenza aims to spark debates around science topics raised in movies, discussing their likelihood in the future and present technologies. In this event we will be discussing Dissociative Identity Disorder and other mental health issues after the screening of Split. The discussion will be held with an expert in the field from the University of Malta. Snacks and refreshments will be served during the discussion.
ĊineXjenza is supported by the STEAM Summer School project funded by the Erasmus+ of the European Union. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv.
