BIMI Children's Film Club and Sci/Film presents an event on “The Science of Emotion” Screening Pixar’s Inside Out

Pete Docter, USA, 2015, 94 minutes

FREE EVENT, BOOK HERE

“Do you ever look at someone and wonder: What is going on inside their head?”  Joy asks in the opening line of Pixar’s film Inside Out.

Inside Out is the story of 11-year-old Riley and her emotions: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust. When Riley moves with her family to California, her emotions struggle to keep her happy, and when Joy and Sadness accidently get sucked out of Riley’s Headquarters her emotions are thrown into chaos. Can Joy and Sadness learn to work together to find their way through Riley’s mind and back to Headquarters? Can Riley come to terms with the complex emotions of growing up and learn that sometimes it’s ok to be sad?

In this special Sci/Film + Children’s Film club event developmental scientists, Dr. Tim Smith (Birkbeck) and Dr. Rachael Bedford (King’s College London) will discuss the science of emotions, what they are, how we perceive them and how scientists can study them. At 1pm, before the film screening, audience members can take part in interactive games and science studies, including recording how you watch a trailer, whether you can ‘match the emotion’, or ‘create a character’. After the film there will be a short discussion on the representation of emotions in the film and a Q&A about all things kids, emotions and movies.

This event and the Sci/Film series are funded by a King’s College London/Wellcome Trust ISSF (Institutional Strategic Support Fund) public engagement grant, the School of Science and BIMI.
