The popular Science On Screen series continues Monday, October 28, in Santa Fe with SFI Postdoctoral Fellow Clio Andris presenting Stanley Kubrick's 1964 dark comedy Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
The legendary Peter Sellers stars in Kubrick's satire of Cold War-era mutually assured destruction, nuclear hysteria, and U.S.-Russian relations. Andris will draw from her expertise in 20th century America, geography, and social networks to explore this landmark film and the significance of Cold War satire.
The show begins at 7:00 p.m. at the Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 1050 Old Pecos Trail, in Santa Fe. Advance tickets are recommended. For tickets and prices, call the CCA Box Office at 505-982-1338.
Science On Screen is a collaboration of SFI and the CCA. During each showing, an Institute 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.)
