Set in the 18th century, Illum Jacobi’s road movie follows Enlightenment philosopher Edmund Burke and his mismatched (and made-up) Native American servant on a Grand Tour of the Alps, as Burke attempts to write a new edition of On the Sublime and the Beautiful, a picturesque picaresque…but instead of the sublime Burke falls into the ridiculous!

Come along for a screening of the film followed by an interactive discussion that will be explore what it means to be a human guest on a non-human planet, thinking about human attempts at mastery of the natural world, environmental resistance to man’s mastery, and the comedy that sprouts at this disjunction!

This event is suitable for ages 18+.

This event is part of Edge Hill University's Festival Hub programme.
