The 150th anniversary of the birth of Marie Curie was celebrated in style in London last night (7 Nov) with a screening at Institut Français du Royaume-Uni of a new film about her by Marie Noelle who was in attendance to introduce the film and to take part in a Q&A with Kieron Corless of Sight and Sound magazine as part of French Film Festival UK .

Swipe Films are releasing the award-winning film, in cinemas from 24 November after premiere previews in the Festival.

The screening was followed by a party at the nearby Polish Hearth Club on Exhibition Road, hosted by the Polish Ambassador which included scientific demonstrations and a virtual reality trailer. Curie is a legendary scientist who discovered radioactivity (and polonium) and is still the only woman who has won two Nobel Prizes for Science. She had a turbulent love life and first woman ever buried in the Pantheon in Paris, at the memorial dedicated to the “great men” of France.
