The Guardian presents Le Havre/Mark Pagel, London

What has a Finnish-made film about illegal immigrants in France got to do with a renowned evolutionary theorist? Or the Guardian? The film in question is Le Havre, by Aki Kaurismäki, a gentle yet robustly political parable set in the French coastal town of the title, with a similar tone to a previous film, The Man Without A Past. Pagel, meanwhile, is an evolutionary theorist who operates on every scale, from genetic codes to language, culture and the history of human co-operation. That gives you a clue to his take on the movie, but the post-screening discussion could lead anywhere, especially since you can watch the film on the Guardian website, submit questions, read the live blog and watch the film any time in the next two months.
