A top surgeon accused of a serious crime. Conviction would mean planned operations will not go ahead – and the evidence is far from conclusive.
We are delighted to include The Justice Syndicate in this year's Global Health Film Festival programme;
A collaboration between recovering theatre company fanSHEN, computational artist Joe McAlister and neuroscientist Dr Kris De Meyer, The Justice Syndicate explores how we form opinions, and uses machine learning to augment the live experience - it's a piece of playable theatre drawing on a jury format. It asks how we fill in the gaps, how we deal with our preconceptions, and how being part of a group can affect all this.
We'll run two two-hour sessions on Saturday 07 December, one starting at 11:00 and one starting at 14:00; film festival pass-holders will be able to sign up for one of the twelve jury spaces available in each session onsite at the Registration Desk. A small number of single tickets available here.
Power and privilege; trust and technology; thought and action. How will you vote?
Content warning: The Justice Syndicate contains both discussion of sexual assault and explicit description of consensual sexual activity.
