Science on Screen
Science on Screen is an ongoing film series that combines special screening and conversations including scientists and filmmakers that offer new perspectives on both film and scientific subject matter. Films span from the silent era through those made for the Internet; subjects range from seahorses to robotic clones. The series has featured the work of such filmmakers as Isabella Rossellini, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Agnieszka Holland, and Alex Rivera, who have discussed topics including marine organisms, reproductive biology, epidemiology, and human-robot interactions with scientists including Mandë Holford, Fabien Cousteau, and Maria Gloria Dominguez-Bello.
Starting February: Extinction and Otherwise, a series of scripted and non-scripted films that depict extinction, survival, and life as it might be.
Science on Screen is organized by Sonia Epstein, Executive Editor and Associate Curator of Science and Film.
Made possible with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
