The Award winning Documentary FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement will have its UK premiere in Edinburgh as part of the Filmhouse Cinema and Edinburgh University’s “Cyborg Ethics Film Festival.” The film will screen on Sunday, Nov 24th, at 1:15 PM. California based Film maker Regan Brashear approached Sue earlier this year after seeing 'Creating The Spectacle!' online.

“How far can human beings go in replacing their body parts with machinery before they can be considered as cyborgs? Will humanity eventually become obsolete? Should individuals download themselves into their computer hard-disks before they die? What would these new developments mean for their identity? The Cyborg Ethics Film Festival, which is a first in the world, will seek to answer some of these questions. At the end of each screening, a discussion will take place between the audience and a panel of invited experts in bioethics, science, law, medicine and politics.”
