The popular Science On Screen series in Santa Fe continues this Wednesday, February 6, with Cris Moore – a physicist, mathematician, computer scientist, and author – providing a window into Shane Carruth’s twisty and unforgettable 2004 cult film "Primer", in which two young inventors, working after hours in a garage, craft a machine that opens up a universe of possibility…and consequences..
Science On Screen is a collaboration of SFI and the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Santa Fe. During each showing, an SFI scientist presents a favorite film, offering personal perspectives and insights from the world of science. It's an idea-rich spin on the movies.
SFI and CCA presented seven Science on Screen events in 2012. (Watch the 4-minute trailer for "Groundhog Day with Murray Gell-Mann," screened May 17, 2012, at the CCA.)
The 2013 encore series, presented in conjunction with the Coolidge Corner Theater and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
