Anomalisa (2015): Screening and discussion

Tuesday 15th May (18:00-20:30), the Screening Room, Hallward Library, University Park

Presented as part of Month of the Mind 2018, the University is delighted to offer a screening of Anomalisa (2015) followed by a discussion facilitated by Sarah Hinds, Counsellor (University Counselling Service).

Nominated for an Oscar award for ‘Best Animated Feature Film of the Year’ in 2016 and described as ‘A masterpiece’ and ‘The most human film of the year’, Anomalisa is a feature length animated film about Michael Stone, an author that specialises in customer service and a man who is unable to interact deeply with other people. His low sensitivity to excitement, and his lack of interest made him a man with a repetitive life in his own perspective. But, when he went on a business trip, he met a stranger – an extraordinary stranger, which slowly became a cure for his negative view on things that who will possibly change his mundane life. Rated 15.

The screening will be followed by a discussion around the issues presented in the film, led and facilitated by Sarah Hinds, a Counsellor and Psychotherapist from the University’s Counselling Service.

Open to staff and students only. Refreshments included.
