Imagine Science Film Festival: Post-Miasma Theories

Short films from six countries

Aside from making a cool band name, Miasma Theory is the notion that diseases such as the Black Death were caused by noxious smells. It's a misguided notion, but a fascinating one nonetheless. This series of short science films explores the flawed theory, 150 years on from when it was laid to rest. Six shorts in all will present post-miasma theories from around the world. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. This event is free for New School students.
