Stanley Kubrick's speculative dramatisation of the evolution of primal ape into primal man in 2001: A Space Odyssey demonstrates cinema's unrivalled power to dramatise The Big Questions. To explore and debate this evolutionary moment in the history of cinema, we are delighted to welcome the original Moonwatcher ape, Dan Richter, into discussion with writer, director and Kubrick collaborator Andrew Birkin, as well as some very special scientific guests.
