IMAGINE SCIENCE IN FILM
November 2, 2008 § Leave a comment
Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Tonight, a collection of short films curated by Alexis Gambis and Imagine Science Films shows how science can be effectively incorporated in credible yet compelling fashion into fictional narrative filmmaking. In comedy, drama, intrigue, mystery, animation, these films take a shot at bringing science to the public through visual storytelling. We follow the late evening romance of a scientist with a Petri Dish girl, delve into the complexities of relationships as a beautiful woman falls for an architect who suffers from face blindness, cry with a girl who fights cancer with the help of her intergalactic superheroine alter ego, and chuckle at the comedy improv of a global warming scientist matching wits with some witless senators at a madcap hearing on coral bleaching.
