Simon DeDeo (Omidyar Fellow, Santa Fe Institute)
The series is a joint 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 from the world of science. It's an idea-rich spin on the movies.
The encore series, presented in conjunction with the Coolidge Corner Theater and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, offers six classic films selected by SFI scientists.
