Frankenstein: A Modern Myth will be screening as part of Open City Docs Fest at the Darwin Theatre in London this Friday at 2:00 p.m and the lovely people at Open City Docs have offered us two pairs of tickets as competition prizes.
To win send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (headed Frankenstein) with the answer to this simple question:
Which band, who most famously collaborated with Danny Boyle on the Trainspotting soundtrack, wrote the score to the NT’s production of Frankenstein?
Winner will be picked by random draw. As the screening is on Friday the competition will close at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow so do get your entries in quickly!
The documentary is meant to be screened on Channel 4 but as transmission has been delayed now by almost a year and as there is still no fixed air date this is a rare (and possibly only?) chance to see the documentary so do come along.
Here’s some further information about the documentary and the festival:
Frankenstein: A Modern Myth
Adam Low / 2012 / UK / 48’
Fri 22 June / 14:00 / Darwin Theatre
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the first and greatest myth of the modern scientific age, has like all enduring masterpieces, touched a nerve at critical points of human progress. Frankenstein haunts our age of global anxiety and unprecedented scientific experimentation like never before. Frankenstein: A Modern Myth looks at the myth of Frankenstein through the prism of Danny Boyle’s sensational new sell-out production of Frankenstein at the National Theatre. The film features exclusive access to rehearsals and interviews with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature, and with Danny Boyle and writer Nick Dear.
