Darwin Originals

A series of short films inspired by Darwin and his legacy

Festival Studio,
Linden Mill,
Linden Road,
Hebden Bridge

Screenings 2pm to 4pm,
Thursday to Sunday throughout the Festival (from Sat 27 June)


Poetic, unorthodox, political, humorous and unexpected, Darwin Originals is a series of eight artists’ films inspired by the life, work and legacy of Charles Darwin.

The films explore the artists’ personal fascinations with Darwin, from the meals Emma Darwin prepared for her invalid husband, to the plastic soup waste in today’s Pacific Ocean, from Darwin’s ‘thinking path’ at Down House, to the genetics of red hair.

The eight films are by Ackroyd & Harvey, Bobby Baker, Anne Bean, Lucy Cash, Curious, Graeme Miller, Henry Montes and Lemn Sissay.

Produced by Artsadmin and DVDance. Created for Channel 4. Supported by the Wellcome Trust and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. We are extremely grateful to the team at Artsadmin for enabling these screenings to be part of our Festival.

We would also like to thank Millcroft Associates, Festival Studio and 3-C for their support.
