Published almost two centuries ago, Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley (1797 – 1851) is recognized as a pioneering work of science fiction. In calling upon science to satisfy the quest for immortality, the legendary story is constantly echoed in contemporary times, in a struggle against death that defies imagination and fiction. To celebrate the novel’s bicentennial, this documentary reveals the fascinating life of its author. As the plotline evolves, creator and creature are brought into the spotlight to breathe new life into the enthralling history of this masterpiece of the horror genre.
