BIFF film screening followed by a panel discussion with Mia Halme (Film director), Halvor Sommerfelt (UiB) and Marte Haaland (UiB) hosted by Karen Marie Moland (UiB)
In cooperation with BIFF and Bergen School of Global Studies we will screen the movie People We Come Across followed by a panel discussion with Mia Halme (Film director), Halvor Sommerfelt (UiB) and Marte Haaland (UiB) hosted by Karen Marie Moland. Moland is the co-leader of the Health Pillar at the Bergen School of Global Studies.
About the movie:
While reading the newspaper one day Mia Halme (Film director) came across what she thought was a crazy research idea, namely that of transporting Finns to Benin, exposing them to bacteria causing diarrhea and examining their stools with the purpose of developing a vaccine. In the movie People We Come Across, Halme follows the research project in a small village in Benin, exploring the personal experiences of those involved. The film draws attention to how research is conducted, cultural exchange, charity and colonial history. Join us for a conversation about research ethics, decolonization and the intersection of science and society.
The movie screening starts in Jusbygg II Auditorium at 17:15 and will be followed by the panel discussion starting at 19:00. The panel discussion will also be streamed on Zoom.
Pizza will be served. Both events are free and open for all. Sign up here to save yourself a seat.
