Superhero Science

Leeds Uni, 2pm-3.30pm

This interactive workshop led by Dr Annette Taylor and Dr Mark Wilson from Leeds University looks at the science behind superpowers from genetic mutation to the chilling power of the atmosphere and how scientists try to mimic the real world to achieve remarkable things. The superheroes discussed are: · Spiderman - how does he walk up walls? · Storm from the X-men - how does she freeze objects? · Daredevil - how does he see when he is blind? The workshop involves video-clips, demonstrations and activities with volunteers from the audience.

HPPH, 4pm

+ He’s Not a Vegetarian, Dir. Oliver Smith, UK, 2010, 6 min

Recommended 8+ due to theme and age of characters.

Ten-year-old Anton wishes that his older brother could help him against the bullies at school. Instead, Buller is obsessed with outer space and his autism means that he is in a different school and his awkward behaviour embarrasses Anton. One day the brothers come across an intergalactic gadget which transforms Buller into the ‘cool’ brother Anton always wanted. But for how long?

Documentary See this if you liked: The Red Balloon, Farenheit 911, Magic Feather and Many Other Stories

An innovative ‘magic realist’ documentary set in Iraq. Filmmaker Mark Cousins, who was brought up in a Northern Irish war zone, travels to a Kurdish-Iraqi village and tries to make a dream film about a place that is normally only portrayed in current affairs programmes. He gives the kids cameras. They make little movies about war, love, a fish that goes to a magical place, and a chicken who debates justice.
