The Talkies; Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

All welcome to The Talkies; a Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies (LIAS) film and discussion series running in collaboration with academic research projects throughout the University.



Join Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Douglas Booth (The Dirt) and Matt Smith (Dr Who) this Halloween for a free screening of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, followed by a discussion panel with Zombie extraordinaire Ed Zurlow (organiser of the world's longest running zombie festival), and leading academics in the Austen World, Dr. Gillian Dow (University of Southampton), and Dr. Julian North (University of Leicester), who will set-the-scene for engaging discussion revolving around society's most thought-provoking issues. This event is hosted by key researcher in Culture and Victorianism, Emma Probett.




A zombie outbreak has stirred Austen's classic tale into a contemporary narrative of martial arts, zombie killers and a blood-soaked battlefield of the undead! This action-packed plot throws Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) into a modern realisation of seemingly unkillable social anxieties surrounding class, contagion and migration.



Halloween-themed refreshments provided.
