THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN d. Jack Arnold, 1957 (19 MAY 14:30) / BIG SCREEN CLASSICS: A QUESTION OF FAITH at BFI Southbank.

“A landmark sci-fi classic with a superb script by Richard Matheson, this examines the protagonist’s changing relationship with his wife and his immediate environment when he starts diminishing in size following a strange, perhaps radioactive incident. Imaginative and gripping as a thriller, the film is also philosophically insightful and incisive as a pulp-fuelled meditation on questions of humanity and existence.” (BFI)
