Connected Baby Film Nights Series hosts screenings of little known films that offer insights into the power of human connection. This is the first film series event in Dundee, in partnership with Help For Kids.
What better film to kick off with, for the 2015 series, than the one that started the whole journey: the connected baby? We are treated to in-depth scenes of babies playing jokes on their siblings, being scared by their image in the camera lens, sticking tongues out at their parents, and keeping track of their mum while she searches for a new nappy.
We hear from a range of leading infant psychologists, who help us to understand the significance of babies behaviour and especially to see how communicative they are, right from birth. It turns out that babies are more socially skilled than most of us have realised. The implications of that insight are astounding, for it speaks to the very core of what it means to be human.
The screening will be followed by a discussion - because insights are better when they are shared. Anyone interested in exploring the theme of human connection is welcome to join us. All proceeds going to Help For Kids. This is possible because use of the venue, Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education, has kindly been donated by its directors.
