What if you wake up one day and you don't know who you are anymore? If you have to search again for a new story about yourself, for a new identity. Would that identity be different from before? The protagonist of Poor Things, Bella Baxter, is brought back to life and she must search for her identity. Come hear philosopher Roy Dings talk about the formation of our identity. Do you form it yourself, or do external factors in society do that? After the talk, watch Poor Things. 

Watch the trailer for Poor Things.
