The School of Life Sciences is pleased to hold a screening of Alexis Gambis’ film The Fly Room.

If you’re interested in how we re-discovered genetics after Mendel then look out for the screening of a fascinating science drama.

"Young Betsey is forced to spend the day with her father in his laboratory, the Fly Room, where scientists study fruit flies, unlocking the laws of heredity that later became the foundation of modern genetics. While at first she feels closer to him than she ever has, she ultimately discovers secrets about him that will transform their relationship forever." (IMDB)

This event is part of the free SLS Public Science Events Programme. It is suitable for age 12 and over.

Date: 2-5pm - Friday 25 November 

Venue: Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, CV4 7AL (see map)
