'Complete Elegance' is back with a screening and panel discussion of "Fixed".

What does the future hold for those of us living with disability? If you’ve not seen this important film on the troubled relationship between technologies and people, then join us. The film traces contemporary debates between transhumanists, bioethicists and disability rights activists where superhuman ideals are pitted against the everyday hardships of people living with technology. For one night only, Gumbramorra Hall will be transformed into a theatre. Let us wine and dine you with light refreshments and hear your own thoughts on these issues. After the screening, a panel of speakers will respond to the film in an open Q&A forum.
