Statement on 'Titanic' film

5 Apr 2012

When the film Titanic was released in 1998 it caused problems for some people with photosensitive epilepsy. This was due to a scene which contained flickering lights. The film is being re-released this weekend. Epilepsy Action contacted 20th Century Fox to ask if anything was being done to make people aware of this. A spokesperson told us that they have alerted cinemas to the problem. They have advised cinemas that warnings should be present to inform cinema-goers.
