Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) lives an apparently idyllic life in the small coastal town of Seahaven, unaware that his entire world is manufactured for the purpose of a reality television show, of which he is the star. Peter Weir’s satire addresses existential issues, causing us to reflect upon the extent to which our self is the product of circumstances outwith our control and question our ability to transcend them. 

Screening on 35mm.

Preceded by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening talk by James Mooney, lecturer in film and philosophy and Director for Access and Outreach at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning.
