Wissenschaftskino: "Babys" – Screening and Discussion

Their names are Ponijao, Bayar, Mari and Hattie. They were born in Namibia, Mongolia, Japan and the USA. Two of them live far away from civilization, the other two live in the middle of the big city. They are single children or part of an extended family. But as different as their origins are, as different are the cultures in which they grow up – when babies babble, gurgle and laugh, it sounds the same all over the world.

Following the screening, Prof. Dr. Stefanie Hoehl (Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences) and Jun.-Prof. Dr. Robert Hepach (Leipzig Research Center for Early Child Development) will answer all questions about film and research into early childhood development.

The Wissenschaftskino Leipzig is a series of events organized by the Leipzig scientific institutions in cooperation with the Zeitgeschichtlichen Forum Leipzig and the Knowledge Policy Department of the City of Leipzig.

Admission is free and all those interested are cordially invited!

When? Tuesday, 23 October 2018, 7 pm (admission 6.30 pm)

Where? Zeitgeschichtliches Forum, Grimmaische Straße 6, 04109 Leipzig
