Symphony of Soil screening - Aberdeen TechFest

Public event
1 October 2015, 7 pm: tickets available
at Craigiebuckler site, Aberdeen AB15 8QH
for scientists, staff and interested parties

As part of Aberdeen TechFest and to continue our celebrations of International Year of Soils, the James Hutton Institute will host a screening of acclaimed feature documentary film Symphony of the Soil at our Aberdeen site, on Thursday 1 October 2015.

Not only is it a great chance to see a fascinating and beautiful illustration of soil’s central role in humankind’s existence - the film’s director will also be on hand to introduce the movie and to answer questions afterwards. General admission tickets are available from the TechFest event page and a limited number of tickets are available to James Hutton Institute staff.

If you can't make the date, we're joining up with Soil Association Scotland to host a screening in Edinburgh on Wednesday 30 September - details to be confirmed. There will also be a screening for staff members at our Dundee site within the next couple of months, and a DVD will also be available to staff via our library under our academic/educational licence.

For more information please contact Events.
